Portsmouth Fact: Portsmouth and Southsea Station
Opened as Portsmouth Station on 14 June 1847, it was renamed Portsmouth Town on 2 October 1876 to avoid confusion with Portsmouth Harbour at the end of the line. It then got renamed Portsmouth & Southsea in 1925. The station was once the junction for the Portsmouth Dockyard branch, known as the Admiralty Line, which entered the naval base at the Unicorn Gate.
