Basildon's handy links to London – located 25 miles west and a mere hop, skip and train ride away - means that dating in Basildon doesn’t have to be limited to ‘Bas Vegas’. If you’re one of the many resident Basildon singles you’ll know full-well what we’re referring to, but for the sake of balance: ‘Bas Vegas’ is what is locally known (whether or not ‘affectionately’ may depend on your personal point of view) as Basildon’s Festival Leisure Park.
With its array of clubs and restaurants and enjoyable leisure facilities like the Hollywood Bowl and Empire Cinema – if would be the perfect place to go for a movie date or a humble bite to eat.
However, why not spread your Basildon dating wings and suggest an altogether different sort of destination?
Despite being an urban town, Basildon boasts a surprising number of parks and open spaces. So how about an outdoor date?

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a little entertainment, Towngate Theatre could give you a small slice of the West End experience. With local talent and famous faces appearing throughout the year, you might be surprised at the amount of talent on show. Why not buy two tickets the next time you’re planning an evening out with one of your matches?
If the big smoke is calling your name, why not give in and head into London for a night out on the tiles? Its endless restaurants and bars mean you’ll be spoilt for choice. With the city and the rest of Essex on your doorstep, you can dine out as much as your bank balance allows.
Designated as a ‘new town’ in 1948, Basildon’s population has steadily increased over the years.
