The town of Farnborough in north-east Hampshire is probably best known for its biennial international airshow. Hundreds of companies exhibit at the show and thousands of people visit.
The Farnborough Aerodrome is renowned for its long-standing aviation links. Back at the start of the 20th century, His Majesty's Balloon Factory was set up in Farnborough.
Since then Farnborough has become well-known for its pioneering work; from the first powered flight in Britain in 1908 to the first car to go supersonic on land in 1997. A list of the scientists and engineers who have worked at Farnborough, now a commercial enterprise, reads like a Who's Who of British aeronautical science.
Hampshire is currently home to over 65,000 businesses, bringing employment to nearly 690,000 people and an economic wealth of £35.4 billion.
Farnborough is situated within close proximity to the Capital and just a short distance from several local attractions such as The Surrey Hills, South Downs and popular tourist attractions such as Windsor Castle & Ascot Racecourse. Find out more here
