Location & Directions

The Essex Global Summit is being held in the picturesque Hylands House, situated in the Hylands Estate.

Hylands House is a grade II* listed Neo-Classical elegant villa with meticulously restored period rooms from both Georgian and Victorian eras. Originally built as a modest red brick Queen Anne style home in 1730 by local MP Sir John Comyns, the house and parkland was redesigned by famous landscape designer and architect Humphry Repton.  Hylands House was rescued from ruin by Chelmsford City Council and restoration was completed in 2007.  Steeped in history and set amongst beautiful surroundings Hylands House is a fascinating place to explore.

Hylands Estate is proud to have approximately 574 acres of restored historic parkland open to the public free of charge, including ancient woodlands, grassland, ponds, lakes and formal gardens.
