Situated on the borders of Hampshire and West Sussex, this historic market town with its timbered and tilehung houses and cottages, is one of the gems of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The many shops, restaurants and cafés in the town ensure a vibrant atmosphere. The Haslemere Museum has fascinating exhibitions throughout the year and is also home to artefacts from ancient civilisations, including an Egyptian Mummy, as well as specimens from the animal kingdom, fossils and plants. Nearby Black Down is the highest point in the South Downs National Park.

The Haslemere Hall is the centre of cultural life with a wide variety of shows, opera productions, plays, films and other events. The opening in 2011 of the Hindhead Tunnel has enhanced the attractiveness and character of nearby Hindhead as a major attraction for walkers and sightseers who are able to enjoy the peace of the heath and woodland.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

Haslemere is easily accessible by all routes and is ideally situated as a centre for touring the south east of England. London is 44 miles away via fast roads and the historic naval town of Portsmouth lies 26 miles to the south.
Haslemere by Car
Haslemere has excellent access via the A3, a major trunk road running between London and Portsmouth.
From London turn off the A3 at Milford and take the A286 to Haslemere. This route will bring you through the charming villages of Brook and Grayswood before arriving at the north end of Haslemere High Street.
From Portsmouth turn off at Liphook and take the B2131 into Haslemere which will bring you through the south western side of the town. If you should miss this turning from the A3, take the next turning at Hindhead crossroads (A287) directly into Haslemere. This junction is best avoided if possible as it can become very slow moving especially at peak travel times, weekends and bank holidays.
