Why Choose Basildon?
Formed in 1948 after World War II as a 'new town', Basildon now has a population of nearly 170,000. Local amenities include the Towngate Theatre and the Festival Leisure Park with cinemas, clubs, restaurants and bowling (the third largest nightclub complex in the UK!). There are plenty of green spaces within and around the town and transport links to Central London are excellent (only 25 miles away). You can drive via road, on the A127 and A13 to reach London, as well as taking the very reliable C2C train service to London Fenchurch Street. If you fancy a seaside getaway, hop on the C2C to Southend-on-Sea and visit Southend Pier, the longest pleasure pier in the World!
