How to book

How to find us

We’re located on Queen’s Road in Aldershot – a 15-minute walk from the Rail and Bus stations and close to the Westgate leisure complex. 

Car parking onsite

The West End Centre car park is at the back of the building and can be reached via William Farthing Close off the Queens Road. The car park is managed by a member company of the British Parking Association (BPA) with a camera-based system with registration plate recognition. We believe that this will provide the best and most effective service for visitors of our venue and users of the building. 

Please do not park on the Queens Road in case our car park is full, a Resident Parking scheme is in operation and being enforced, and we like to keep our neighbours happy. The nearest available car park is located next to Morrison’s supermarket (charges may apply). 

Use of the West End Centre Car Park is free for all legitimate venue visitors and users of the building. These include live show ticketholders, tutors and participants of classes and workshops, and visitors attending our other activities or those offered by hirers of our rooms and services. Free parking is also available to artists performing or exhibiting at the West End Centre. 

All legitimate visitors must obtain a parking permit by registering on the touch screen tablet at the West End Centre Box Office desk. This must be done before leaving the car park again after your visit. Legitimate visitors can also register by scanning a QR code with their mobile device once in the building. These codes are available upon request at the Box Office desk and at the Westy bar. 

For all other users of the West End Centre car park a parking fee of £1 per hour is to be paid, daily between 7am and 5:30pm. This fee can be paid via a ‘Phone and Pay’ system, please follow the instructions on the notice boards in the car park. After 5:30pm parking is only available to legitimate venue visitors and West End Centre Parking Permit holders. 

A limited number of West End Centre Parking Permits (daily, weekly, monthly, annual) is available from the West End Centre Box Office desk during regular opening hours. Holders of such permits are eligible to use our car park at any time during the period covered by their parking permit. 

A breach of any of the above terms may result in a Penalty Charge Notice of up to £100.

We regret that, given the nature of the space, we cannot always guarantee a seated position will give a reasonable view of the performance as we have a limited number of seats available at the back of the space. It is not possible to place freestanding stools or seats at the front of the auditorium due to restrictions set out in our licence.
