2. Built 1839-40. Architect Sir William Tite. This was Southampton's original station and is one of the earliest surviving pieces of railway architecture of any scale in England. Only the facade and shell of the central building are original. Italinate style. Three storeys. Stuccoed. The ground floor is rusticated and projects with 5 round-headed arches, the outer ones now filled in, the remainder forming a portico, with a balustraded parapet over the whole having a clock in the centre. The upper portion of the front is flanked by pilasters of quoins. The first floor windows are in moulded architrave surrounds with pediments over. Heavy modillion eaves cornice. Later ground floor addition to the north and contemporary one storey, one bay addition to south. This station was the prototype for the style of local London and South-Western region railway stations into the 1860s. (See St Denys Station Osborne Road (qv)).
