We are open from 09:00 to 17:30, Monday to Saturday. There is nearby "Pay & Display" parking available and we are short walk from Petrsfield Station (On the London to Portsmouth route). "The Petersfield Bookshop" specialises in buying and selling Antiquarian and second-hand books, but also sells antique maps and prints, new books, Ordnance Survey maps and has an on-site picture framing workshop. Inside the shop there is a display of antique dolls from Ann Westwood's private collection. A special feature of the premises is a canopied forecourt where second-hand books can be bought – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! "The Petersfield Bookshop" was founded in 1918 by Dr Harry Roberts, an East End doctor who had helped set up the Panel Scheme (the predecessor of the National Health Service). In 1958, Frank Westwood bought the business and relocated it to Chapel Street. Sadly Frank passed away in January 2006 but the shop continues as a family business, with Frank's wife Ann and sons David and John being partners.
