‘Frimley’ is derived from the Saxon name Fremma’s Lea or ‘Fremma’s Clearing’ and the area was renowned as a coach stop on the road from London to Southampton for about 400 years. Less than a mile from the town is the famous Royal Military Academy known as Sandhurst. All British Army officers are trained here including many members of the Royal Family: Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Prince Michael, Duke of Kent and Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
