Nestled in the heart of South Downs National Park, pretty Petersfield is surrounded by stunning countryside, quaint villages and yet has excellent commuter links to London, Surrey and the south coast.
Located where the A272 and A3 (which now diverts around the town) meet, the towns’ wealth originally grew from the wool and tannery trades. Today the cattle market and medieval fairs are long gone (during the 1960s many of the historic building were also lost) but the town has retained its village feel while still having a modern buzz, good communication (high broadband speeds) and a number of local events.
With a history dating back over 4,000 years, there is certainly plenty to explore. The Petersfield Music Festival is a classical and choral event that attracts world class musicians and plenty of music fans. There is also the Petersfield Vintage Antique & Militaria Fair which is another major event on the local calendar.
Surrounded by stunning countryside there are great spaces for dog walking, cycling, running and walking. The town has a large pond and parkland and also a wide variety of local, independent shops and cafés.
Sitting between Guildford to the north and Chichester to the south, Petersfield is on the crossroads of the A272 (east to west) and A3 offering fast routes to Central London and Portsmouth. Trains to London Waterloo can take just 1 hour and 3 minutes. Gatwick is 1 hour by car.
