Basingstoke is a town in northeast Hampshire, in south central England. It lies across a valley at the source of the River Loddon. It is 48 miles southwest of London, 30 miles northeast of Southampton, 16 miles (26 km) southwest of Reading and 19 miles northeast of the county town, Winchester. In 2008 it had an estimated population of 82,913. It is part of the borough of Basingstoke and Deane and part of the parliamentary constituency of Basingstoke. Basingstoke is often nicknamed “Roundabout City” or “Doughnut City” because of the number of roundabouts.
It is often mistaken for a new town, Basingstoke is an old market town expanded in the 1960s as part of a tripartite agreement between London County Council, Hampshire County Council and Basingstoke Borough Council. Basingstoke has been selected to take part in the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay. The torch will pass through the town from Newbury on 11 July 2012 and then make its way to Winchester.
Basingstoke is recorded as being a market site in the Domesday Book, and has held a regular Wednesday market since 1214.During the Civil War, and the siege of Basing House between 1643 & 1645, the town played host to large numbers of Parliamentarians. During this time, St. Michael’s Church was damaged whilst being used as an explosive store and lead was stripped from the roof of the Chapel of the Holy Ghost, Basingstoke leading to its eventual ruin. Cromwell is believed to have stayed in the town towards the end of the siege and wrote a letter to the Speaker of the House of Commons addressed from Basingstoke.
Festival Place, a new shopping centre, opened in October 2002, adding a huge boost to the town centre, transforming the former The Walks Shopping Centre and the New Market Square. Aside from a wide range of shops, there is also a range of cafs and restaurants as well as a large multiple-screen Vue cinema (formerly Ster Century until their takeover in 2005).Festival Place is currently the 20th largest Shopping centre in the UK. Central Basingstoke has two further shopping areas: The Malls and the Top of Town. The Malls area has declined since the opening of Festival Place and the closure of its Allders department store, though it is still home to several major retailers.

The diversity of sporting activity in the area is also illustrated by organisations such as Basingstoke Demons Floorball Club, Basingstoke Bulls Korfball Club and Lasham Gliding Society.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
