Hiya, so me being stupid enough and i cant comprehend how, i've booked my hotel which was meant to be directly in chelmsford for the wrong date and now I can't get a hotel in chelmsford. THis is resulting me looking into getting a hotel in / around basildon or around there im looking. maybe up north somewhere but im not too sure around witham or braintree. my only concern is travelling to and from there. by this I mean I was looking at getting an uber there with my mate. but when I looked on the uber site I can't seem to get an uber back as it says its unavaliable? My thinking is I wont be the only one in this situation and wondering what other travel arrangements there will be?

Basildon to Chelmsford and back will be pretty expensive in an Uber, it's at least a 30-45 minute drive. I think you'd be better off going by train. Trains from Basildon or even Thurrock to Chelmsford will be totally rubbish though. What about staying in Romford? If you can get on a direct train from Romford to Chelmsford it takes 20 minutes (really) — from Chelmsford station you could probably get an Uber, I reckon it'd be much cheaper and less of a pain

lucyclark1000 the above might help you if you're able to change your booking?

oh really when i looked on maps it said it was only a 20/25 min drive which is why we chose basildon! i think it’s non refundable the one we booked as there weren’t many options left 😭 thanks so much for your suggestions though
