Fleet is a town and civil parish in the Hart district of Hampshire, England, located 37 miles (60 km) south west of London. It is part of and is the major town of Hart District. The 2007 population forecast for Fleet was 31,687, although this does not include areas such as Elvetham Heath and Church Crookham which are considered as suburbs.[1] Fleet contains the areas of Church Crookham and Elvetham Heath.

In 2011, 2012, and again in 2013 Hart district, of which Fleet is the main town, was voted the best place to live in the UK by the Halifax Quality of Life study, above areas such as Elmbridge in Surrey and Wokingham in Berkshire. This is due to the highly affluent majority of the population, better weather and health conditions, high levels of access to leisure space and the towns situation surrounded by countryside.

Fleet is locally famous for its pond, the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire, and quaint High Street with traditional Victorian and Edwardian look and its market.
