Virtual Tour - Pinehurst Corner

You've made it to Pinehurst Corner on the Farnborough Road, the former site of a popular cafe and now the site of the Pinehurst car park, home to the weekly Farnborough car boot sale.

Nearby to the North is Queensmead, the Tumbledown Dick and former Rex Cinema. For the full list of locations nearby, pick where you want to go next from the menu on the right.
