Basingstoke is situated in southern England and is the largest town in Hampshire County. It’s wealth of history and attractions makes it a bustling town with many activities to do as well as being surrounded by scenic countryside landscapes.

History of Basingstoke

Although the town of Basingstoke developed rapidly in the 1960’s to help accommodate a rising population after the second World War, its history dates back much earlier.

Basingstoke is renowned for being an old market town, and the Basingstoke market was mentioned in the infamous Doomsday book of 1086. The Willis Museum actually showcases evidence of early human settlement dating back to Palaeolithic times where they have axes and flints on display.

Even today, there are remnants of the Roman City of Calleva Atrebatum which is open to the public to walk along the walls of the Romans and to see where the city’s amphitheatre once stood.

At the start of WW II, Basingstoke had a population of just 13,000. Today, it now has over 87,000 residents. Like many towns after the Second World War had ended, it became a rapidly changing town, modernised, and expanded to help with the London overspill of the population. Since then, Basingstoke has become an important commercial centre, housing large corporation headquarters and developing tourist attractions to share its rich history.

The Milestones Museum located in heart of Basingstoke is a famous living history museum where you can explore the streets of the past on recreated Victorian cobbled roads and browse vintage cars, antiques, historical buildings and more.
