Sholing railway station is a railway station serving the suburb of Sholing, on the edge of Southampton, England, operated by South Western Railway. It is the finishing point of the Itchen Way, a 32-mile long-distance footpath.

Upgrades[edit]

In 2009 the station had stairs replaced and new CCTV cameras fitted. This followed an incident where a male fell down the stairs on Platform 2, breaking his leg.

Local campaigns have sought to see additional shelters installed at the station following increased usage which has doubled over the last six years.
