Main range U-plan with L-plan pavilion: 2-storeys with single-storey pavilion, 2:5:2 bays, all sash windows without glazing bars, moulded entablature to window openings with keystones, alternate round-arched and cambered heads, flat string course, ground floor with continuous entablature, paired windows to outer bays of central range, inserted doorway left, similar to booking hall via central bay, fanlight with double, half-glazed doors. Similar fenestration to pavilion, linked by lower 2-bay corridor, square-headed entrance adjoining, one window in re-entrant angle. Platforms: cast-iron columns with simple decorative spandrels supporting canopies to 'up' and 'down' lines. There was formerly a single-storey canopy on the facade linking the 2 wings of the booking office. Walls: rendered. 3-bay to west with segmental-headed blind arcades, flat coping, terminating in square piers, shallow buttresses on exterior elevation. Portslade Station first opened in 1840 on a slightly different site and closed 7 years later. The present building of 1857 is little altered.
