South Western House is a Grade II listed building, which was originally built in 1865. It is an historic landmark in the old dockland area of Southampton with some of the most momentous events of modern times. The hotel was acquired by the London and South Western Railway Company in 1871 with the hotel built over the ends of the railway lines. In 1912 many wealthy people stayed here before embarking on the ‘Titanic’
