Farnborough/Aldershot built-up area and Aldershot Urban Area are names used by the ONS to refer to the quite loose conurbation spanning the borders of Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire in England. The ONS found a population of 252,937 in 2011[1] (up 4%, rounded, from the 2001 figure of 243,344 residents).[2] This makes it the 29th-largest built up area in England and Wales.

It was given these subdivisions in the 2011 census:[3]
