Set in the glorious countryside of the South Downs National Park, Petersfield is an ancient market town originally built as a Norman 'new town' at the end of the 11th Century. It is now a vibrant place for shopping and eating out.

The main square is an attractive focal point providing the perfect venue for twice weekly markets on Saturdays and Wednesdays. There is a Farmers' Market on the first Sunday of every month.

At its centre stands the magnificent equestrian statue of King William III. The Church of St. Peter dates back to 1120 and retains many original features.

The Petersfield Festivities take place in the market square over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Petersfield has a vibrant musical and artistic scene. The Petersfield Musical Festival is a week-long musical extravaganza in March, which has taken place since 1901. Many eminent composers and musicians have been associated with the festival over the years.

Music, art and drama can be enjoyed at Bedales Arts in nearby Steep.

Petersfield Museum is a small independent museum that encompasses two sites in the historic market town of Petersfield. The museum has three main collections, the Social History of the town and surrounding area are displayed at the late 19th Magistrates Courthouse, behind the Police Station. A short walk across St Peter’s churchyard, you will find the Flora Twort Gallery that houses the Bedales Historic Costume Collection, the Community Gallery and work by local artist Flora Twort.
