What To Do In Basingstoke

CD-ADMIN January 10, 2017

Before you book coach hire to Basingstoke, you’d be wise to check out what there is to see and do in the local area… so here are just five of the top attractions to consider putting on your itinerary.

The Vyne

This is a Tudor country house with a stunning lake and walled gardens, as well as a stained glass chapel that’s definitely worth an explore if you have the time. It’s really family friendly and perfect for a picnic if it’s dry and sunny. Jane Austen apparently also used to attend balls here!

Marwell Zoo

There are more than 170 exotic and endangered animals to be found across an impressive 140 acres, as well as a toy train which would be perfect to keep the kids happy while on your Basingstoke trip. There are giraffes, penguins, tigers and more – plus you can feed the animals at certain times of day as well.

Festival Place

Fancy doing some shopping while away? Then Festival Place is a must for you. More than 200 shops can be found here, as well as a cinema, lots of restaurants, bars and cafes, and it’s just a short walk from other shopping venues like The Malls and the old town, which has a weekly market.

Whitchurch Silk Mill

Textiles had a huge role to play in the development of the town and you can find out all about this at the Silk Mill, which to this day produces high quality silk for stately homes and costume dramas.

The Anvil

Want to hear some live music? Then you’ve got to head to The Anvil, found in the centre of the town. Think jazz, folk, classical, country and a whole lot more.
