Basingstoke Things to Do

    As the head office of the AA is in Basingstoke, the Milestones Musem is primarily a museum of transport but is nicely done,a bit like the the large museum in York. Plenty to see and great on a rainy afternoon. With a bowling complex, swimming pool, ice rink and cinema right next door, you can park & spend a whole day there.

    For years, we've looked at a plate hanging on the kitchen wall of St. Michael's. It was my mother-in-laws family that came from here and the anniversary plat was a reminder of the home her father left behind. As far as we know, we're the first to return to Basingstoke and visit the church.

    The sauces are superb. Very hot!

    Couple of problems

    1. When you have a few friends, you will not get your food at same time. On manyoccassions, one person has finished their meal before the other person even gets there

    2. Lack of variety of drinks

    3. Most of the times i have been, my chicken has been stone cold ie not cooked. And they have also put the wrong sauce on and tried to tell me that mayonaisse is their extra- hot sauce!

    Favorite Dish: Chips with extra hot peri-peri
    Or chicken with extra hot peri-peri

    When the food is done right - 5 stars...
    More often, it is substandard/inconsistent - hence low grade

    The only nightclub in Basingstoke although other venues do open to 2am

    It is open Wednesay to Sunday nights. Thursday and Sunday Night (R & B) have cut price entry and drinks

    I hear varying reports about this club but at the end of the day it is always busy

    I have been there Sunday nights and It is mellow. Saturday you get more mixed age range

    Like most clubs check dress code and carry age ID

    Dress Code: Check with club

    The Basingstoke Bison play in the Elite Ice Hockey League, this highest level of professional Ice Hockey in the UK (Standards are similar to ECHL although there are former-AHL/NHL players)

    Other teams are:
    Belfast Giants
    Nottingham Panthers
    Newcastle Vipers
    Edinburgh Capitals
    Sheffield Steelers
    Cardiff Devils
    Coventry Blaze
    Hull Stingrays
    Manchester Phoenix (welcome back 06/07)
    London Racers (sadly no longer with us)

    Home games are Saturday nights (usually) and the season runs from September to March.

    Tickets for the 05/06 season were £11 for adults, £9 concession/student, £7.50 child

    Equipment: Remember to wrap up warm - this isn't the warmest arena in the world! Your outdoor coat should suffice, but if you do get chilly you can always get a nice warm coffee and a hotdog!

Basingstoke Favorites

    Favorite thing: Basingstoke has excellent access to the M3 motorway. Basingstoke is 50 miles from london and close to reading, winchester, southampton are just a short drive. The best thing about basingstoke is that you can get somewhere else easily from there and you'll want to as well.
