Although a station at Swaythling was mooted in the 1830s, when Southampton’s first railway line was in the planning stages, it was not built until 1883. It was constructed of red brick in a Neo-Flemish style with a flemish gable at the north end of the front elevation. The contractor was the local firm J. Bull and Sons. It is Grade II listed.
