look up any word, like smh:
 
1.
A good place to live, full of interesting places and things to do.

there may be some chavs and people who like to yell at you in the street but all in all it is very nice.

the town centre has a great selection of places to go and brand stores such as superdry and zara but also the shitty ones like tk max...

if you have money you will live in the country side around basingstoke] such as Upton Grey, Herriard, parts of Old Basing and some of the surrounding area.

quite a lot of teenagers have rich parents who have no real concern for how their kids spend their time so give them cars so they can do what they like, consequently you will also find a lot of audi's and BMW's crashed into lamposts!
a good place to live would be the rich part of basingstoke like Herriard, it is better than Old Basing and Litchpit (they just think their rich!)

Also known as "Amazingstoke"

A very affluent town in the south of England.

You may spot the odd chav or pregnant teenager but is mostly full of young, fashionable people who know how to have a good time.

The majority of people go to college and uni, because they are CLEVER.

However, if you are looking for a nice, decent guy who will treat you right, do not come looking in Basingstoke. The town is full of so called "playas", dickheads, arseholes, wankers who all think they are God's gift to women.

For some reason the shopping centre has 2 Starbucks, 2 Costas, Tchibo and a lot of other small coffee shops, WHY?!

There are quite a few fatties in this town, mainly caused by the 3 McDonalds and 3 Pizza Huts.

Supermarket and Leisure Park carparks are the preferred hang out for "boy racers" and general saddos.

People who went to Bishop Challenor School are known as Bible Bashers, people who went to Brighton Hill are Yellow Bellies and Fort Hill and John Hunt are just terrible schools. Aldworth Science College is where its at!

Rough areas in Basingstoke include Popley, Oakridge, Buckskin and some parts of South Ham i.e Burnaby.

People from Kempshott, Chineham, Old Basing and Hatch Warren like to think they're rich and posh, but are mostly all on drugs.

Generally a good place to live, as long as you have money, you won't get bored.
