South Downs Centre

South Downs Centre

The South Downs Centre will closed to the public during the lockdown 5 November–2 December in line with the latest Government guidance.

As well as being the home for the National Park Authority, the South Downs Centre in Midhurst is a community hub, visitor centre and a green conference venue. 

Based in the market town of Midhurst, right in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the South Downs Centre is a visitor gateway to the National Park where visitors can learn about the history of the landscape and the people who look after it. 

We are asking all visitors to the South Downs Centre to wear a facemask and we will also be limiting the numbers who can enter at any one time.
