Farnborough is a medium sized town in the South of England. Famous for the bi-annual Air Show. Farnborough is the headquarters of Rushmoor Borough Council which is responsible for Farnborough and the Neighbouring town of Aldershot.

There is a lot of debate as to where Aldershot begins and Farnborough Ends. Most say it is divided by the Basingstoke Canal.
