History, food, drink, shops and entertainment

The Top of The Town is positioned in the historic heart of Basingstoke’s town centre and home to the Willis Museum and Sainsbury Gallery and The Haymarket as well as restaurants, pubs, smaller and independent shops. Located just off Junction 6 of the M3, the area is in an excellent location with a range of car parks, bus stops and can be easily reached from the train station. There’s more to Basingstoke’s Top of The Town than meets the eye. From its 800-year old Market Place to its famous Burberry fashion connection, the area is steeped in local history. Basingstoke has been home to noteable residents over the years and many architectural features relate to them plus some other historically important buildings remain.
