Chelmsford is the County Town of Essex. There is a small university, Anglia Ruskin, which also has a campus at Cambridge, but Chelmsford does not really have the atmosphere of a student town. Chelmsford is now mostly famous for the V festival, held at Highlands Park, and has hosted quite a lot of well known bands. Traffic at V tends to be awful, but the town is on the main Liverpool Street trainline from London to Norwich or Colchester.
The Cathedral is quite small, and most of the pubs and restaurants are owned by large chains.
The town is surrounded by many small towns and villages e.g danbury, broomfield and springfield
