Hey, girls! Me and my friends have had the most amazing trip in Chelmsford and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. We reserved a special weekend to see one of the biggest cities in Essex County and the neighboring towns as well. The group visited not only Chelmsford but also Brentwood, Braintree, Harlow and Basildon. Some of us stayed at Travelodge Hotel (128 Parkway), while others preferred Best Western Atlantic Hotel (Brook Street). As we like comfort, we traveled with taxis. And we had a wheelchair accessible taxi reserved for Beth, as she was still recovering from her car accident.
When me and my friends visit a new town, we like to see as much of it as it is possible. The first attraction that we visited in Chelmsford was Hylands House & Estate. This historic parkland has a lot of things to offer, especially if you enjoy being in the open air. As one of my friends had always wanted to be a policeman, we also visited the Essex Police Museum and had some serious fun. After a tiring day spend going from place to another, we took a taxi cab back to the hotel. For the next trip, we promised to choose minibuses, so that the entire group could fit into one single vehicle.
We returned from Chelmsford to Gatwick airport with an airport taxi. I was amazed to discover that the 60 miles distance was covered in only one hour and six minutes. We chose a saloon car for the ride and paid £108. One of my friends needed to go from Chelmsford to London Southend airport and reserved one of those executive cars for her ride. She paid £43 for an executive car and the driver covered the 20 miles distance in just 29 minutes. The rest of us stopped for small breaks at Corinthia Hotel (Whitehall Place, London) and at Premier Inn (Brentwood House, 169 King’s Road, Brentwood). We also stopped for lunch and dinner at Hix (66-70 Brewer Street, London) and at Sugar Hut (93-95 High Street, Brentwood).
