Petersfield is a great place to base yourself in Hampshire as some of the city’s most popular attractions are within easy reach. Uppark and the Gilbert White's House and Garden and The Oates are amongst the many popular places to discover here. Also, well worth the effort are the Old Thorns Golf Course and the Liphook Golf Club.
Petersfield has plenty of museums and theaters nearby that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. Spend a few hours of browsing the exhibits at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in Chichester and the Cass Sculpture Foundation.
If the sun is out, follow the locals and head outside to the local natural destinations. Go for a walk in one of the local parks and gardens, which include Stansted Park in Havant.
A pleasant way to experience the great outdoors is to hit the fairways at the area’s challenging golf links like the Hindhead Golf Club in Hindhead and the Cowdray Park Golf Club in Midhurst.
If you love sports, be sure to catch local legends, the Portsmouth FC, take to the field in nearby Fratton Park, Portsmouth. On game days follow the river of blue, white and red, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fans in the nearby pubs for a post-game drink.
At the end of a day discovering the sights, sounds and smells of Petersfield, recharge your batteries in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. Make reservations for the Alton House Hotel, the Bear Hotel Havant, or the Inn on the Hill, Haslemere.
