Aldershot is a town in the English county of Hampshire, located on heathland about 60 km (37 mi) southwest of London. The town is administered by Rushmoor Borough Council.
Aldershot is known for its connection with the British Army. This led to rapid growth from a small village to a Victorian town. Today, Aldershot is known as the “Home of the British Army”. Aldershot is twinned with Sulechów in Poland, Meudon in France and Oberursel in Germany.
