Aldershot is in the middle of a £65m redevelopment of its Town Centre. Built around an open piazza, the new vibrant Westgate complex will include a new 7 screen cinema, a choice of restaurants, a Travelodge hotel and a Morrisons supermarket. Aldershot provides good commuter links to the M3 and A3 via the A331and also has a mainline train station to London. The British synchronised swimming team have their base at the sports centre pool and will continue to train there in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.

As well as its military connections, Aldershot has many attractions including the West End Centre, the Princes Hall, a large Tesco Supermarket and the football stadium for the local football team. The West End Centre is a thriving arts centre which offers a diverse range of creative activities and the Princes Hall is a multi-purpose venue offering a host of family entertainment.
