Basingstoke is a major commercial town in Hampshire, surrounded by charming villages and many historical places of interest.

Within the town, the Willis Museum has a worthwhile display of the town's history. Another point of interest is the Viables Craft Centre, which houses permanent craft workshops of weaving, ceramics, glass working, wood turning, goldsmithing, glass engraving, metal and hand engraving.

There are many sites to be found nestled in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Basing House, once England's largest private palace, was besieged by Oliver Cromwell's forces before being razed to the ground. At the site are Medieval and civil war earthworks, and the Jacobean garden with its Tudor walls. Another attraction is Vyne, a Tudor National Trust property, set amongst picturesque lakes and woodland trails.

The nearby Roman town of Silchester, formerly known as Calleva Atrebatum, possesses one of the best examples of a surviving Roman town wall. Meanwhile, Highclere Castle boasts an exhibition of ancient Egyptian artefacts, discovered by the owner's ancestors.

Basingstoke has a wealth of restaurants to suit anyone's taste, including Italian, Indian, Chinese and French cuisine, as well as numerous country pubs, wine bars and town bars. Festival Place Shopping Centre, which contains more than 165 shops and restaurants, is another popular modern attraction. One mile west of the town centre is Basingstoke Leisure Park, which offers a fitness studio, health suite, indoor bowling, ice rink, cinema, swimming pools, tennis courts, gymnastic club and cricket club.

To drive to Basingstoke from London, take the M4 then connect with the M3 and continue straight on to Basingstoke. Alternatively, trains leave London's Victoria Station for Basingstoke several times an hour (Duration 30 mins).
