The year after the Crimean war had broken out in 1853, the British Government bought land for a new military camp located near ‘Alder Shott’ as it was then known. The town steadily grew and the railway station was built in 1870.

Always a military town, by 1914 Aldershot was home to around 20% of the British Army. During the Second World War large numbers of troops, mainly our Canadian allies, passed through the station, and after 2009 Aldershot became home to many Nepalese Gurkhas who had formerly served in the British Army.
