The town of Farnborough in north Hampshire is probably best known for its biennial international airshow. Hundreds of companies exhibit at the show and thousands of people visit. 

The Farnborough Aerodrome is renowned for its long-standing aviation links. Back at the start of the 20th century His Majesty's Balloon Factory was set up in Farnborough. Since then Farnborough has become well known for its pioneering work, from the first powered flight in Britain in 1908 to the first car to go supersonic on land in 1997. A list of the scientists and engineers who have worked at Farnborough, now a commercial enterprise, reads like a Who's Who of British aeronautical science.

At FAST Musuem, Farnborough Air Sciences Trust (open Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays only) you can explore a fascinating collection of aircraft, equipment, machinery, photographs and films from Farnborough’s illustrious aviation history.  Guided tours of the famous windtunnels and centrifuge are also bookable.

Farnborough Abbey is where Napoleon III and his wife are buried. The monks live a simple Benedictine life. They earn their living through printing, publishing, bookbinding, and the Abbey Shop is an important part of the monastery's income and is open to visitors.
