Whiteley Area Guide

Manns & Manns, Estate Agents in Bursledon, Southampton

Whiteley is located in southern Hampshire between the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton and close to the market town of Fareham. The development straddles the boundary between two council districts: the Borough of Fareham and the City of Winchester.

Historically, the site now occupied by Whiteley was farmland and coppice. The wooded areas were formerly used to shelter troops in the build-up of forces for transportation to northern France in preparation for D-Day during the second world war.

Whiteley contains a residential community, retail community, and a business park.

Whiteley Shopping Centre was redeveloped in 2013 and boasts an array of shops, eateries, and a leisure complex, providing a nine-screen cinema.

Whiteley also contains the Solent Business Park which consists of a number of large companies, including Zurich Financial Services, NATS (formerly National Air Traffic Services) and the offices and studios of ITV Meridian.

The renowned Skylark Golf & Country Club is close by and offers an 18-hole golf course, gym & spa including swimming pool.

Whiteley is located adjacent to junction 9 of the M27. Swanwick Station is nearby, which provides links to the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton with onward travel to London Waterloo.
