Hylands House ought to be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to be called a National Flower Show. This is in no way a flower show, may as well go to B&Q for free.

Round trip of nearly 100 miles to go to a market and had to pay for the privilege. Stone path was slippery, grass verges were muddy and had to dodge the cars when they were leaving. After the few exhibits in the house the stalls...More

My friend Madge led an excellent tour around Hylands Park and House. The gardens are spectacular and the extensive grounds including the Serpentine Lake are great for walking around. Excellent cafe in the stables block and lots of very reasonably priced plants for sale in...More

Yes, over 550 acres, with formal gardens. check out Chelmsford City Council's website and do a search on Hylands Park as Tripadvisor won't accept links

Can you cycle in the grounds of Hylands Park? Our child likes to cycle away from the main road.
