A taste of military history
Army life and Aldershot go hand-in-hand at the home of the British armed forces. And the area celebrates this connection in the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces Museum and the Aldershot Military Museum - both of which offer hands-on activities for all the family. On top of that, there’s the annual Aldershot Army Show. Over 60,000 people come to see the spectacular displays of military vehicles and equipment.
Embrace the outdoors
Whether you’re a fan of winter sports or taking a sunny dip, Aldershot has you covered. The ever-popular Alpine Snowsports centre offers visitors the chance to try their hand at skiing, snowboarding and donutting on its outdoor slopes. Or why not head to the Aldershot Lido on a sunny day. Filled with pools, slides, sandpits and play areas for kids, it’s the perfect spot for a day out with the family.
Blissful walks along the canal
If you’re looking for a more relaxed way to spend your days in Aldershot, take a stroll along the beautiful Basingstoke Canal. The 32-mile long waterway runs past the outer edge of Aldershot. The walk passes historic bridges, calm lakes and green parks. Stop off along the way for a pub lunch or trek further to the Canal Visitor Centre at Mytchett - great for a break with its tea room and gift shop. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Aldershot?
