SO19

Overview

SO19 holds the residential areas of Woolston, Itchen, Sholing, and Weston, just a bridge away from the city centre. The area is packed with everything you need, and offers the waterside benefits! A personal favourite area of ours is the Centenary Quay complex giving views over to the Ocean Village Marina, sunsets, a 24 hour gym, and a brilliant coffee shop. Weston shore is Southampton’s only shoreline, and is a fantastic spot where you can see the large cruise liners making their way across the Southampton Waters.

History

Weston can be dated back to the 10th century, and was originally a small fishing community. Weston didn’t become part of Southampton until 1920, in which it became more urbanised and residential. Woolston was also recognised as part of Southampton in the 1920’s, and has a strong maritime history. The area really took shape as new industries, roads and infrastructure was seen in the Victorian period. A key bit of history is when the Itchen bridge was developed in the 1970’s linking Woolston to the city centre, opening up the easy commute!
