Hotels in Farnborough UK

Farnborough is a town in north east Hampshire, England. Farnborough was founded in Saxon times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name is formed from Ferneberga which means "fern hill".

Farnborough Airshow

The famous Farnborough International Airshow is a week-long event that combines a public airshow with a major trade exhibition. The event is held in mid-July in even-numbered years.  The first four days (Monday to Thursday) are dedicated exclusively to trade, with the final three days open to the public.

The airshow is an important event and is used for the announcement of new developments.  Flying occurs on all seven days, and there are also static displays of aircraft outside and booths and stands in the indoor exhibition halls. On the Saturday and Sunday most of the exhibitions halls are shut, but there is a travelling funfair and children are admitted.

Farnborough Abbey

The town is the home of St. Michael's Abbey, a little monastic community.  The Benedictine life has been lived there since 1895. The community is small and young. The monks live a traditional life of prayer, work and study according to the Rule of St Benedict.

The Imperial Crypt in the Abbey is the resting place of Napoleon III (1808–1873), Emperor of the French, and his wife, Eugénie de Montijo, (1826–1920) and their son, Napoléon, Prince Imperial.

River Blackwater

One of the most famous Viking battles in Britain, the Battle of Maldon, took place directly beside the river in 991. The Vikings were successful in their battle against the Anglo-Saxons.

The River Blackwater on the Hampshire/Surrey border was also the location of the first international prize fight between the English boxer, Tom Sayers and the American fighter, John C. Heenan, which took place near the Ship Inn pub.
