Why should you visit Basingstoke

The Southern English town of Basingstoke has a fascinating history which can be traced back to the early Roman period and beyond. Basingstoke was originally recorded as a market town in 1086 and up until the 1960s this definition of Basingstoke remained. However, the small town made a prompt change after the Second World War’s “London Overspill” development plan and has rapidly grown to become a thriving town nestled in a valley at the source of the River Loddon.

Basingstoke is the largest town in Hampshire, and surpasses any previous notions of a market town. Its expansion has led to significant investment in the city centre in recent years has allowed for the development of major retail outlets, luxury dining establishments and entertainment venues. Further improvements to the town centre and surrounding areas are constantly being made. These plans and growth has led to more tourism in the area and more and more popularity as a citybreak.
