This one-time village is
now the home of the British Army.
It became a garrison town after a camp was built here in the middle of the 19th century during the Crimea War.
Its modern attractions include the Airborne Services Museum, Aldershot Military Museum and the Aldershot Military Tattoo, an international event.
Near the Royal Garrison
Church is a 30ft tall statue of the Duke of
Wellington astride his horse, Copenhagen.
The striking memorial was built from bronze cannons captured at the Battle of Waterloo.
