Trains to Basildon

Trains travelling into Basildon station do so on the London, Tilbury and Southend Line. The line itself was inaugurated in the 1850s, but Basildon station is one of British Rail's more recent endeavours, having only opened in 1974. In 2013,enhanced lighting, non-slip floors and a lick of paint welcomed the swathes of commuters on their way to the capital. On weekdays fast trains run to Fenchurch Street and the Southend Coast at a rate of four per hour. Basildon made its name as a popular retail hub, and for many years the Eastgate Shopping Centre was the largest shopping centre in Essex, with thousands of people coming from far and wide to revel in the goods on show. Today, it no longer holds that accolade, but along with its rival Westgate Park Shopping Centre, retail therapy is still Basildon's major draw - and the pedestrianised town centre, one of the largest in England, is easily accessed via a subway outside the station. As for those seeking some outdoor fun, the Festival Leisure Park, with a wake-boarding school, bowling alley and cinema, is just a short bus ride away.
