Aldershot station dates back to 1870, and the original Victorian facade still greets passengers as they arrive to start their journeys today. The station is on the Alton line, with trains serving stations to Alton in one direction and towards Guildford, Ascot and London Waterloo in the other. The average journey time to Waterloo (via Woking) is around 50 minutes. In 1854 Aldershot became the first permanent training camp for the army and quickly grew into a thriving town. And still today the military is an important part of the community in the town known as the home of the British Army. The main shopping area centred around the pedestrianised Union Street and Wellington Street is five minutes on foot from the station. On the other side of town, about 20 minutes' walk away, is the famous 30ft-high statue of the first Duke of Wellington on his horse, Copenhagen, which was made using bronze from the cannons captured at the Battle of Waterloo.
