Petersfield is a market town in Hampshire, within the South Downs National Park area. The picturesque town centre is popular with shoppers and tourists. Local attractions include pubs and restaurants, a theatre, and a farmers' market. Petersfield is close by the A3, which connects London with Portsmouth, making it a convenient stopping off point on the way to or from the coast. The A272 to Winchester also passes through the town. A train service connects Petersfield with London and Portsmouth, with its ferries for Europe and the Isle of Wight. The town attracts older people and retirees, and the average age is high for the U.K. More London commuters are also choosing to settle in Petersfield. House prices in Petersfield are lower than in some nearby towns, like East Meon, for instance. Cheaper properties can be found in the surrounding villages, such as Clanfield.

Petersfield Job Opportunities

The tourism and leisure sector is a big employer, both within the town and in the countryside, at sites like the Queen Elizabeth Country Park. These may also offer roles in conservation. Agricultural roles can be found on farms in the surrounding area. The town centre provides hospitality jobs and catering jobs in Petersfield, as well as sales and administrative jobs in retail. Although not an industrial centre, Petersfield is home to a number of businesses, and it is possible to find manufacturing jobs and industrial jobs in Petersfield, usually outside the town itself.

Petersfield Employment Trends
