DID YOU KNOW
Basingstoke is the largest town in the county of Hampshire and is also home to Basing House. Here you’ll find ruins of a private house dating back to the 1100s which suffered at the hands of Oliver Cromwell during the English Civil War. See a slice of Tudor England (the Great Barn still stands) and step into the museum to really dig into the history.
Whether it’s comedy, drama or pure entertainment – you’re always in for a good night at The Anvil.
BEST VANTAGE POINT
Take a trip to The Vyne and walk through idyllic trails of this former Tudor palace. Zone out and soak in nature – stroll past medieval fish ponds and age-old oak trees.
EAT & DRINK
Love digging into South American food? Love a cocktail with a kick? Las Iguanas is the place for you. Next to festival Square, this Latino restaurant brings the buzz to Basingstoke plus there’s 2-for-1 Happy Hour cocktails every day. Who could turn that down?
WHAT TO WEAR
Basingstoke opened at the right time, just as our Autumn collection landed. Spend country walks in our warm puffers, for him or for her. Heading to The Anvil? Go for smart, but comfortable: girls, try one of our new-season dresses and a lightweight jacket. Guys, we think a simple shirt and jeans works great, opt for a tee underneath if you’re still feeling the chill.
