Basildon

Basildon is a new town that was created in 1948, designed to accommodate the overspill of Londoners leaving the capital after the Second World War. The urban centre was formed as the focus of four Essex villages along the Thames estuary, with the first house in the new settlement completed in 1951. Despite attempts to prevent Basildon becoming another commuter town, its proximity to London means that many of the inhabitants work in the capital. Popular attractions in the town include the Festival Leisure Park complex, with nightclubs, restaurants, hotels and bowling, earning it the nickname "Bas Vegas" among locals. Sports facilities include a wakeboarding centre and the Sporting Village, with a 50-metre swimming pool, athletics track and prestigious gymnastics club. Culturally, Basildon is best known as the birthplace of electro-pop global stars Depeche Mode, Erasure and Yazoo, but the town also boasts the Towngate Theatre staging a wide range of productions.
