The office is located in a prominent position in College Street, visible as you come round the one way system towards the High Street. There’s convenient public parking right opposite the office, next to the Red Lion pub and also behind us in the main Central car park. Petersfield’s vibrant market town atmosphere and location on the edge of the South Downs, makes it one of the most popular places to live in the region.

Petersfield is a genuine traditional market town that has kept its character and individuality. There’s an abundance of cafes, inns and restaurants including a number listed in the Good Food Guide and this makes the area the perfect place for those who want to live within striking distance of a social hub where you can enjoy a good cup of coffee, delicious eats and a decent pint. The shopping experience is also great, with a monthly farmers’ market and twice weekly general markets held in The Square.
Families looking for recreation are well catered for with a great leisure centre, a couple of local golf clubs, a rugby club, a football club and its very own retro open-air swimming pool in a garden setting. Last, but not least, is Petersfield Heath – just a short stroll from the town – with 69 acres of parkland, a boating lake, cricket club, play area and a great lakeside café.
Cyclists, riders and walkers can make the most of Petersfield’s exceptional rural setting in the South Downs National Park with chalk downland slopes rising beyond the townscape. Queen Elizabeth Country Park lies to the south with some 20 miles of waymarked trails. The town is certainly not known for its wild nightlife, but it does have a much-praised youth theatre, a number of Festivals and a great local museum.
Petersfield is really well connected with frequent direct trains to Guildford and Portsmouth plus London Waterloo. The main A3 is only one mile from the town, providing easy access to the south coast in one direction and London in the other. All in all, a great town, lovely surrounding countryside and villages, plenty to do, well connected and retaining a strong sense of community.
