This cathedral is well worth a visit, quite small, but a really beautiful ceiling. It is in two parts and both totally different. Helpful staff.

Not one of your headline cathedrals in the UK, but it is neat, and in places beautiful. Everything seems to fit with Chelmsford's cathedral, from the towering spire, to décor and architecture. It's certainly worth a visit if you're in the region.

Having grown up in Chelmsford the Cathedral is a beautiful building and well worth a visit, and spending some time inside to take it all in.

I have been into this cathedral on many occasions and my last visit was for the Chrism oils service during Lent this year. This is a beautiful and spiritual place and definitely a place to visit or even better attend a service.
