Looking old

Got plenty of shops but a few now closed, it could do with a remodel as looking a bit old and worn now even the market is not very good now.

If you go to this shopping centre take ear plugs as the piped music is so bad you will have to walk out ever 10 mins just to think , do not go shop in the open air

To be honest this town centre that I have been going to for 35 years now has seen better days. If you are looking for a st Luke's or scope shop then yes it's good . There are a lot of charity shops here my guess is the rent is to high for small businesses to make a go of... More

I work in Basildon - they are supposed to be doing a lot of improvements on a snails pace! Lots of units closed, East Gate ok if Debenhams or Asda closes I don't think people will bother. Food hall in galleries is always busy not my cup of tea for having lunch out. Lots of cheep shops for the bargain... More

Although well maintained the Centre is showing its age and could do with a refurb. There is a good mix of stores and the food court offers a good mix of food, avoid the food court after 3 as it fills with school children. Parking is offered in the Asda store located at one end of the centre and is... More

Overall, the shopping centre meets most of our needs but it is pretty generic and the toilets are not always clean. There are a few nice shops with friendly staff and places to eat. I strongly recommend Rush (if you want a nice albeit a bit more expensive haircut), Clarks (we buy all our shoes there but you may need... More

Whilst ther are many shops the layout is not really that suitable for Carers pushing wheelchairs. Too many narrow aisles on the Boutique Shopping area on the upper floors. In addition to this I find it unacceptable that Blue Badge Holders are charged to park their cars in the Car Parks.

Not as many shops as there used to be, good if you want a cafe, or a pound shop, there's lots of these. Other than that I'd prefer to go lakeside.

Having lived in the area all my life it has been sad to see it go so downhill. They are planning a big revamp but at the moment Basildon town centre is full of pound shops and vacant buildings. The Shopping centre itself is pretty standard with the usual shops. The upper level has a food court with a variety... More

Nothing outstanding. The only mall in Basildon that's good for nearby residents. Basildon town centre is literally dead after the mall closes.
