    Petersfield – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Who Peter
      The town gets its name from the first church in the area built by William Fitz Robert, the 2nd Earl of Gloucester in the 12th century, and dedicated to St Peter, one of the 12 apostles.
    2. Pond Life
      The town’s pond was created in 1735 after locals dredged the land to graze animals. The pond still exists to this day.
    3. Pub Life
      If you prefer your water with a little more alcohol, you may be interested in William Defoe’s account of Petersfield. Defoe, who wrote Robinson Crusoe, also penned A tour thro’ the whole island of Great Britain in which he described Petersfield as “a town eminent for little but being full of good inns.”. We’ll raise a glass to that!
    4. Peters-fest
      The town has a music festival dating back to 1901. But you won’t find Stormzy or the Arctic Monkeys headlining, Petersfield Music Festival is a classical and choral event.
    5. Mound Land
      There is a large concentration of burial mounds to the east and south east of Petersfield Heath, many of which could be up to 4,000 years old.
    6. All’s Fair
      Every October the town hosts the Taro Fair. Dating back to the 19th century, the fair’s name ‘Taro’ is old English for ‘Bull’.

    About Petersfield

    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.
