Petersfield Town Visitor Centre Continues To Support The Wider Community - The Directory Group

Petersfield Town Visitor Centre continues to support the wider community

A re-branded tourist information centre based at Petersfield Library has been popular in its first couple of months since its reopening.

The centre closed in April after the East Hampshire District Council slashed funding, saying the use of money could have been spent elsewhere.

Soon after the decision to close the centre was made, the Petersfield Town Council pledged £45,000 to keep the centre, run by Tourism South East, open for at least another year.

Petersfield is labelled as a tourist gateway to the South Downs National Park.

A spokesperson at the town council says the centre will become more focused on the town.

They said: “We will be working with Tourism South East (TSE) to focus the efforts of the centre in becoming more town orientated, and the centre is renamed ‘Town Visitor Centre’ to reflect this change of approach.”
