Attraction Information

Basing House and Visitor Centre is a nationally important historical site with some amazing stories to discover! It dates from the Norman period, was the site of the biggest private house in Tudor England, and it suffered at the hands of Cromwell during the Civil War!

The Visitor Centre contains displays to introduce you to Basing House and its fascinating history, and includes a model of Basing House during the Tudor period, before it fell in 1645. The new museum is full of fascinating facts, with details of life at Basing during Tudor and Elizabethan times, the archaeology of the house, plus the Civil War and the downfall of Basing. You can experience the sights and sounds of the Civil War with a great audiovisual show when you step into the battle scarred Great Barn, which is one of the largest buildings of its kind in England (and the only Tudor building remaining on the estate!).
