🥾 We headed to a new family walk spot in North Hampshire, on the outskirts of Aldershot.

Caesar’s Camp, a panoramic view of Aldershot

Caesar’s Camp is an Iron Age hill fort on the border of the counties of Hampshire and Surrey and as also visited Long Valley. It was a great spot to explore with panoramic viewpoints across the countryside up hillsides, woodland areas and streams running through and open heathland, plenty of walking routes online too. This area which the general public have access to is also Ministry of Defence land therefore when visiting you should:

✔️look out for red flags – used to indicate live firing is taking place
✔️check armed forces training and firing times before visiting
✔️pay attention to signage, information displays and red flags
✔️stick to public footpaths, bridleways and byways
✔️do not touch any military debris – report its location for safe disposal

This way we were able to stay safe and Respect the Range.

Wellington statue

We then drove a short distance, a few minutes to Wellington statue which towers over the landscape… That is one big horse statue!

It originally stood on the Wellington Arch in Hyde Park but was moved to Aldershot in 1883 when the arch was moved to Constitution Hill.

Nepalese lunch at Gurkha Kitchen

Have you tried Nepalese food before? Well did you know North Hampshire is home to tons of fantastic Nepalese restaurants in the town of Aldershot where many families of the famous Gurkhas settled?

We decided on Gurkha Kitchen and loved the dishes, we came away with full bellies and even some takeaway food from the meal for under £40, which included poppadoms, two large lassi, veg chow mein, steamed momo, fried momo, and a mutton curry thali.

📍Gurkha Kitchen, 68 Grosvenor Rd, Aldershot GU11 3EA
