Christmas Shopping in Petersfield

As many of you know, Petersfield is a brilliant place to go for a shop. The streets are filled with small independent businesses from cafes, restaurants, boutiques, beauty parlours and so many more wonderful shops that are perfect for finding those unique and thoughtful gifts this Christmas.

Here’s a festive guide to help you make the most of your Christmas shopping trip to Petersfield:

First off, if you want the full Christmas experience try going from the 24th November as the Festive lights will be on, transforming the streets into a mini winter wonderland. If you want to make a day of it, why not enjoy a local dinner after shopping in one of the many wonderful, cosy restaurants nearby. 

Or if you want to be an early bird and get the shopping out of the way before the busy Christmas period I would recommend heading into Petersfield during a weekday as it may be a little quieter.

It would be impossible for me to list every brilliant shop we have in town on here BUT… did you know we have digital brochures on our website?


Take a look at the Shopping Brochure that is on our website below.
