Basildon is a town located in the Basildon District of the county of Essex, England. It i situated 40 km east of Central London and is near the towns of Wickford, Billericay and South Benfleet.
Basildon is a reasonably new town, designated after WWII to accommodate London overspill. Basildon Town is one of the most densely populated areas in the County of Essex, mostly due to its influx of families from the Boroughs of London. However, it is thought that Basildon's population will continue to increase as many people are re-locating to the Town from the Boroughs of London, Essex and the Country.
If you're in Basildon and need a rental car, perhaps during the olympics, as Basildon was also chosen to host a newly developed Olympic Sporting Village, then get a deal on a rental car through Basildon Car Hire.
