South Downs Centre

South Downs Centre

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. 

Our friendly staff can help you plan your visit with leaflets on walks and places to visit.  You can also purchase OS maps and books from our shop, as well as mugs, keyrings and other South Downs merchandise, which make great gifts.
