I would recommend the Essex Records Office, in Chelmsford, Wharf Road. If
you are driving there is a huge open car park right next to it.
If you are walking from the bus/train station I would allow 10 to 15
minutes, depending on how fast you walk.
I'm not sure if it has changed recently, but bring your own packed lunch

fine you can find a place outside overlooking the river.
I understand the Council's long-term plans include a hotel next door to the
ERO which will include a restaurant, but this is not yet anywhere near
