The local area guide to living in Aldershot

Aldershot is situated in North Hampshire, in the borough of Rushmoor, and is home to the British Army’s base. The area was relatively obscure before the military moved to the area in 1850, and is now a bustling market town. There is a real sense of community that exists between the locals and the military, and the Aldershot Garrison has some landmarks that befit local tradition such as the Aldershot Observatory and the Aldershot Military Cemetery. The Church of St Michael the Archangel can be found in the town centre, and is a Grade II listed building, dating back to the 12th century. The Wellington Statue is also a hugely symbolic landmark, and depicts the first Duke of Wellington seated on his horse, Copenhagen.

Aldershot is a very lively place to live in general, and entertainment is never in short supply. Visitors and locals alike are often drawn to the West End Centre, where there are music events and art exhibitions held all year round. The Princes Hall is another grand location that holds various different shows, and has previously hosted comedy with Jimmy Carr, and The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain.

The military presence may have affected the population statistics in Rushmoor, as 68.9% of people are aged under 50 compared to the national figure of 64%.
