Aldershot is a town in the Rushmoor district of Hampshire, England. It lies on heathland in the extreme northeast corner of the county, about 31.8 mi southwest of London. Aldershot is known as the “Home of the British Army”, a connection which led to its rapid growth from a small village to a Victorian town. The Aldershot Observatory is a circular red-brick building with a domed roof and it stands on Queen’s Avenue. Inside is a telescope, 8-inch refractor, mounted on a German-type equatorial mount with a clockwork drive. The telescope and observatory building were a gift from aviation pioneer Patrick Young Alexander to the British Army. The local council opened its own Princes Hall in 1973 as an entertainment venue. Another entertainment venue and arts centre in Aldershot is the West End Centre on Queens Road which is popular for small-scale theatre, music and comedy. Union Street and Wellington Street at the centre of the town’s shopping district were pedestrianised in the 1970s when the Wellington Centre, a covered shopping centre, was built over the site of the town’s former open-air market. The Westgate Leisure Park, which opened in 2012–2013, includes a Cineworld cinema, a Morrisons supermarket, and several chain restaurants, including Harvester, Nando’s, Mimosa, Pizza Express and Frankie & Benny’s. There is also a Tesco superstore located at the rear of the development. With a combined experience of over 40 years, Mile5 have become the leading provider for airport transfers to Aldershot and surrounding areas.
