Chelmsford has a rich history which you can learn more about at Chelmsford Museum. You could also pay a trip to Essex Police Museum which holds records of the police force dating back to 1840.
The city's cathedral is the second smallest in England and well worth a visit for its beauty; educational visits are available with a tour guide.

Hanningfield Reservoir Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve is a woodland reserve with a variety of wildlife and a beautiful reservoir with fantastic views. Also worth a visit are Hylands Park, Marsh Farm Country Park and Paper Mill Lock.
