Travel back in time at Milestones Living History Museum

Basingstoke, Hampshire

At Milestones Living History Museum you can journey through time and see how life was as a Victorian or in the Second World War.

Watch the cobbled streets come alive with characters in traditional dress and peer into shops and houses as you walk by. From the Victorian era to the 1960s, peek into the past with room sets depicting a time long before the age of the internet and mobile phones.
You can treat your sweet tooth in the 1940s confectionery shop where you’re able to trade ration coupons for sherbet lemons.

Afterwards, why not try dressing up as a Victorian? Don’t forget the camera. Then pay a visit to the Edwardian Baverstock Arms. This is your chance to relax with a cold drink, tea or coffee and reflect upon your time-travelling experience.
