financial hub, Basingstoke is also the home of Britain's oldest and most respected motoring organisation, the AA, who
have their central office in the town.
The economy of Basingstoke is mainly based around the industries
of electronics, pharmaceuticals and insurance, although it also boasts a vibrant retail sector especially since the completion
in 2002 of the Festival Place shopping centre, home to all the big high-street names. The town centre also has arts and entertainment
venues like the Haymarket Theatre, the Milestones Museum of local history and the Vue cinema to pull in the crowds.
its formative years Basingstoke started out as a small market town at the time of the Anglo-Saxons and was later referenced
in the Doomsday Book as being a royal manor. The area's Tudor past can be seen to this day in the ruins of Basing House
which stand in the village of Old Basing just outside the main urban sprawl of Basingstoke.
