Bitterne railway station is located in eastern Southampton, England. It is on the main Southampton to Portsmouth coastal line, and serves the suburbs of Bitterne, Bitterne Manor, Bitterne Park and Midanbury.
The station was opened in May 1866 as Bitterne Road railway station. The station itself is located a mile west of Bitterne village, although original plans for the railway line would have seen the railway pass right through the centre of the village.
Most train services are operated by South West Trains. Many services pass through Bitterne station, particularly on the Brighton and London lines. Trains run hourly to Southampton Central and Portsmouth and Southsea, calling at all stations en route.
