Milestones Museum, Basingstoke (V084)
25 February 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm GMT
Coach departs Guildford North Street at 10am and Milestones Museum at 3.30pm.
Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in the past on a visit to Milestones, Hampshire’s museum of living history. At the start of the visit you’ll be issued with an audio guide to accompany your self-guided tour of the museum. Your trip to Hampshire past will take you as far back as the Victorian era. The maze of Victorian and 1930s streets is packed with shops, factories and houses, most based on original buildings from in and around Basingstoke.
There is an impressive collection of vintage vehicles to discover and the penny arcade contains a number of authentic arcade machines. You’ll have the opportunity to buy an old penny and a ration coupon to spend at the traditional sweet shop or for something a little stronger, pop in for a pint at Milestones’ very own pub, The Baverstock Arms! The museum café offers a selection of hot meals and light bites, hot and cold drinks and sweet treats.
V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
The perfect way to give a treat to someone special who takes real pleasure in learning new things and taking part in great activities.
