Purpose-built with big ambition in a few short post-Second World War years, Basildon is home to some of the biggest names in industry as well as great clubs, local markets, restaurants and bars and yet boasts more green spaces than any other part of South East Essex, and of course the famous 'Bas Vegas' festival leisure park.
Basildon places to go
Basildon is conveniently located for indoor fun not matter what the weather. A few minutes from the train station you'll find Partyman World and Monkey Madness plus the Laser Kombat laser tag centre and two bowling alleys. If the weather’s kind, plan a trip to Wat Tyler Country Park for excellent nature walks and opportunities to learn about local wildlife, plus a sculptural trail and impressive outdoor play areas.
