Families living in Basingstoke enjoy the best of both worlds – a historic market town yet also boasts the modern shopping centre at Festival Place. It is very popular with families who enjoy a cosmopolitan town but also access to the river and the countryside.

 

Basingstoke is situated 50 miles south west of London close to the M3 and only 45 minutes commute into London Waterloo. It is popular with employees who work for the many major technology and telecoms companies who are based here and along the nearby M4 ‘silicon corridor’.

 

The town is a combination of traditional and modern. The cobbled market square (mentioned in the Domesday Book) hosts a twice weekly market and the square is home to many cafes. Yet just moments away is the modern Festival Place Shopping Centre with over 200 shops, 30 restaurants, multi-screen cinema, sports centre and the Discovery Centre. Basingstoke also is home to The Anvil concert hall and performing arts centre which attracts many of the big West End performances.

 

Whether you’re a home owner searching for the perfect new home or a manager looking to relocate employees, we are committed to providing the best possible relocation service.

 

Serving the Basingstoke area, we take a personal and flexible approach with all our clients, using our insider knowledge to ensure you have all the information you need whilst keeping the whole process straightforward and stress free.
