The changing face of Aldershot

May 30, 2024

With exciting developments in Aldershot, it’s the perfect time to take a fresh look at the advantages this town has to offer.

Aldershot takes great pride in the wealth of military history it has, with many proud monuments and dedicated gardens. Yet now, with the British Army largely reducing the military presence, new home builders have moved into Aldershot and are making their mark.

Superb new developments are creating stylish modern homes and areas to live in. Take, for example, the desirable village of Wellesley, with spacious new apartments and superb houses surrounded by picturesque woodland, yet just a short walk from all the excellent amenities Aldershot’s town centre provides.

“You might be forgiven for thinking that Aldershot is still a military town, or that this historical town was looking a little dated, but a lot has changed recently.

We have seen fantastic enhancements to Aldershot and they are having a big impact on the local property market. These developments have assisted existing Aldershot residents to move up and down the property ladder and attracted a huge number of new buyers into the area."

Pedro Barros, Aldershot Branch Manager

If you’re looking to raise your family, it’s well worth taking a second look at Aldershot’s primary and secondary schools, too. Many of them offer high Ofsted ratings, meaning your children’s education could flourish there.

What has remained the same is the excellent commuting. Whether you’re traveling to Hampshire, Surrey, or further afield, with excellent connections by road and rail, Aldershot is ideal. The mainline station offers an array of options, with direct links to London Waterloo, Ascot, Guildford, Alton, and more. The A3 and M3 are just a short drive away too, so getting out and about has never been easier.

So, what’s in store for the future? Well, the next phases of redevelopment are all either on the way or are about to begin, so residents new and old will have even more facilities and amenities to enjoy.
