Basingstoke car hire is a convenient option if you plan to see and do lots during your visit to this part of the UK...

Located in the county of Hampshire, Basingstoke is a large market town north east of the city of Southampton. Just a short drive from London, it is the ideal destination for a day trip or a short break in the south of England. The town was expanded in the 1960s and has excellent road connections, making car hire in Basingstoke the ideal way to see the surrounding area. Close to the beautiful historical town of Winchester and with easy access to many of Hampshire's delightful medieval villages, Basingstoke is a perfect place for a relaxing break.

Home of the Automobile Association headquarters, the town is very motorist-friendly. If you're in Basingstoke, car hire gives you the freedom to see the sights at your own pace, meaning you won't miss out on the town's varied attractions. Favourite places to visit include The Vyne, an impressive house and estate dating from the Tudor period. This 16th-century National Trust property boasts impressive architecture and attractive gardens and is the ideal place for a family day out.

History fans will also love Basingstoke's museums and historical sites. Favourites include the Milestones Museum of Living History, found in Basingstoke's Leisure Park.  You could also take a trip to Whitchurch Silk Mill, where you can learn more about the importance of the textile industry in nineteenth-century Basingstoke.
