About Park Place Pastoral Centre
Situated at the end of a long winding drive just north west of Wickham on the A334 Winchester Road, this beautiful Georgian Mansion has been massively extended to the rear to form a large and tranquil Pastoral Centre.
Set in eighteen acres of beautiful trees and fields, and with benches and lawns to the front and rear, the centre is used for conferences, retreats and workshops.
The Centre is run by the Congregation of Franciscan Sisters of Mary and the Angels in conjunction with the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth.
The financial burden is eased by the Friends of Park Place, who fundraise to support the overseas programmes in which the Sisters are heavily engaged - hands-on work in some of the poorest parts of the world. Stunning work in difficult conditions for those who have nothing. Nothing at all.
Because of its isolated surroundings, the centre is best accessed for evening events by car, or by taxi from Fareham, just 4 miles away.

The entrance to Park Place is via a large and well-signed gateway just 400m outside the Wickham 30mph zone, and just past Coldharbour Close. Proceed past the gatehouse and keep to the left fork. After several hundred yards there is ample parking a short walk from the Main Hall.
