This ancient market town was built at the end of the 11th century and sits within the South Downs National Park. At its centre is a pretty square with a statue of King William III on his horse. The square hosts regular farmers’ markets throughout the year, selling the very best of local produce.
Petersfield has many independent shops, as well as popular high street brands. It is known for its music and artistic scene and each year it hosts an annual music festival showcasing local talent, making it a great place to visit for a conference or event.
Discover more about Petersfield’s history with a visit to the Flora Twort Gallery and Petersfield Museum, located close to the town centre. Here visitors will find a collection of paintings, historic costumes and archival material relating to Petersfield and its surrounding area.
