Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, Basingstoke, on the river Loddon and 48 miles from London, became Hampshire’s largest town in the 1960’s thanks to the Greater London Plan, the capital’s overspill moving west. Previously home to Jane Austen, Thomas Burberry, founder of the clothing empire, it now is the UK HQ of Sun Life Canada and the AA, other businesses including drug manufacturing, IT and electronics, past industries brewing, malting and cloth. The prosperous town of 152,000 enjoys an above average lifestyle with the Top of the Town, the historic heart housing the Willis Museum, additional entertainment to be found at Haymarket Theatre, at four nightclubs, The Anvil, home to concerts and the Aquadrome housing an ice rink, swimming pool, bowling alley and a ten screen cinema. Further entertainment can be found at The Basingstoke Town Football Club, rugby and hockey teams, other sport at its large Basingstoke Sports Centre. The Basingstoke Canal, built over 225 years ago is non-navigable at present but has a footpath.There are three local newspapers, two further education colleges, a small campus of the University of Winchester and is within a 30 mile radius of six universities. The town has a railway station and is off junction 9 on the M3.
