The Milestones Living History Museum in Basingstoke has group visit opportunities for 2018.
We are conveniently located minutes from J6 or J7 of the M3 with a large free car park and are open all year round (not Mondays) and we have been offering group visits for fifteen years.
Milestones, opened by the Duke of Edinburgh in 2000, showcases a terrific mix of Hampshire’s heritage including our Victorian and 1930’s streets, classic vehicles, costumed interpreters and interactive displays. Your group can buy an old penny and ration coupon to experience our 1940’s sweet shop or have a lunch time drink in our Victorian pub.
We attract over 100,000 visitors a year so please read their TripAdvisor feedback to see why we are rated number one attraction in the area.
Pre-booked Groups (15+) get a discount on the walk up price. You can also pre-book a choice of meal packages or just informally use our café facility as you prefer. Finally we should mention our ever popular gift shop with a wide range of items to bring back those memories of yesteryear.
