How to find the Essex Record Office.
We are located on Wharf Road, Chelmsford, Essex CM2 6YT.
The public entrance is reached from the riverside path.
A cycle path runs along the river, and there are cycle racks by the public entrance.
We are a 20 minute walk from the railway station and bus station in Duke Street. There are also bus stops at the southern end of Springfield Road and on Parkway, both of which are a short walk from us.
There are parking spaces for blue badge holders close to the public entrance to the Record Office, accessible by a driveway from Wharf Road.
The next closest is the Baddow Road surface car park accessible off Parkway (CM2 7PJ for those with satnav). From the car park there is a pedestrian bridge across the river bringing you almost to the front door of the Record Office.
In addition we are pleased to be able to offer all our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park.
The Q-Park Meadows multi-storey car park on Baddow Road (CM2 0DG for those with satnav) is located just a short distance from the Essex Record Office.
