Aldershot is famous as the home of the British Army. Apart from a brief mention in the Domesday Book, this little market town escaped national attention until 1854 when the first permanent army training camp in the country was established here. The Aldershot Military Museum is a couple of miles from the station and tells the story of Aldershot's relationship with the army over the years.
The army connection means that Aldershot is home to many Gurkhas and has become renowned for its Nepalese cuisine. Excellent rail links have also helped cement Aldershot’s status as a thriving commercial centre and commuter town with around a quarter of a million people living in the Aldershot urban area.
