The arrival of the railway in 1847 and the long history of Portsmouth as a port helped transform Fratton into one of the city's most important areas of industrial activity. Much of that is gone now, but travellers are still greeted with plenty of reminders of the time, thanks to the Victorian architecture of the neighbourhood, not least the station itself. On the London Waterloo to Portsmouth Harbour line, there are also regular services to London Victoria, Brighton and Cardiff Central. Fratton Road is the main shopping area of the district and is a short walk to the north of the station. Fratton is also the closest station to Fratton Park, home of Portsmouth Football Club, a ten-minute walk to the east. This will take you past the location of the former railway yards, now a modern business and retail park with a number of hotels and superstores.

Station details & facilities

Fratton has two station entrances, one on Goldsmith Road and the other on Selbourne Terrace, where you will find the station concourse, the ticket office, a shop and toilets. This leads onto platform 1, for trains to Brighton and London. Trains for Portsmouth leave from platforms 2 and 3, which can be reached via two footbridges. One footbridge has lifts for step-free access. The taxi rank is on Selbourne Terrace, and the bus stop on Goldsmith Road.
