The station you’ll most likely to visit if you are in town to see Portsmouth Football Club play on their home turf, Fratton railway station also offers the locals of Fratton trains to Portsmouth and London Waterloo.

Fratton railway station opened in 1885 following the completion of the line through the area as part of the Chichester to Portsmouth Branch Railway. The station now sees around 1.6 million people walk through its doors every year, with a high percentage of those visitors being home and away football fans heading to Fratton Park.

However, it’s not just soccer that the local area has to offer, as Fratton also has its own shale beach – ideal if sport isn’t your thing and you’d rather take a long walk, enjoying the fresh Portsmouth air as it drifts in from the English Channel and up The Solent Strait.
