Have we got any posters who live in Aldershot? My daughter and her boyfriend work in Guildford but can not afford housing there, so they are looking nearby.
Is there any areas to avoid? Worthwhile looking? As property is nearly within their reach there.
Many thanks

The Army has sold off shed loads of their camps there & a huge new build by different company's has been & is going on. The infrastructure is poor & the amenities are even worse, oh, and its still a garrison town.

Yep I live in Aldershot

To be honest, there arnt really any bad parts of Aldershot anymore. There used to be Denmark square and Pegasus which were a bit "no-go" bu they have been flattened and replaced with nice housing projects. Our town centre has really run into the ground over the last few years but its still ok. We have really good transport links and easily the best taxi service in the South East so getting out of Aldershot is pretty easy!

Yeah, as far as places to live go, its actually not bad...

It's a dump, no real town centre, no pubs worth going to. Not a great place for young people to move to.

Try Farnham. Much nicer pubs, a bit more of a community.

Places like Ash/Ash Vale are cheap, but more for families.

Then there's Farncombe/Godalming, probably more expensive than Farnham, a bit nicer and closer to Guildford but with less going on than Farnham.

Woking. If you are buying just to be a commuter it's fine. Otherwise a nothing town.

Aldershot has improved massively since the decline of "armed forces weekend". Cheapish housing, good transport links, and lots to do within easy reach.
Most places have 5hlt areas, and Aldershot is no different from anywhere else.

That's a conundrum ^^^

My sister went out with 3 squaddies. The first was a c-unit, who i eventually had to go to his workplace and front him up, with his boss there. 2 years later he became a police officer. WTF ?
The second was a paratrooper who i did a skydive with, and was a great bloke.
The third was a serial liar, who married my sister and then took out loans secured on my mother's house. It tranpires he had other women and children, and when the Falklands kicked-off, he shot himself in the foot rather than go and fight.

A policeman school friend of mine lives in Aldershot with his teenage daughter. It's not a fantastic place, but he manages fine.

Aldershot or otherwise known as Nepaldershot as for the very large Nepalese community. They are generally friendly and donít cause any problems. The town centre is a dump, more boarded up or closed shops than open ones.
I agree with previous poster, try Ash/Ash Vale, Woking, Camberley, Farnham a definite upgrade on Alders***.
