Probably best known as the home of the British Army, the town of Aldershot in North Hampshire offers a fascinating insight into military history as well as extensive barracks for today's soldiers.

The presence of the Army has a significant daily influence on the town where it is regarded very much as part of the community. Each year the Aldershot Garrison Show attracts 60,000 visitors to the area, with spectacular arena displays, exhibitors and trader, as well as a grand displays of military vehicles and equipment.

A 40 tonne bronze of Wellington on his charger Copenhagen occupied a prominent position alongside the A325, and close to the Royal Garrison Church. It was originally placed on top of the Triumphal Arch at Hyde Park Corner, but was moved to Aldershot in 1883 by horse drawn transport. 

A range of hand-on interactive activities about military life can be found at the Aldershot Military Museum.

The Army set up camp in Aldershot over 150 years ago and as a result a sleepy village rapidly developed into a bustling Victorian town. The town centre is now packed with modern high street shops and has a busy nightlife.

As well as its military connections, Aldershot has many attractions including the West End Centre and the Princes Hall. The West End Centre is a thriving arts centre which offers a diverse range of creative activities and the Princes Hall is a multi-purpose venue offering a host of family entertainment.
