  • About Knight & Lee, Southsea

    A presence in Southsea since it was founded by Jesse Knight and Herbert Soden Lee in 1887, this shop’s origins can actually be traced back to 1831.  A happy shop, whose well looked-after workers lived above it, it was bought by the John Lewis Partnership in 1940.

    Though destroyed by enemy action in 1941, it finally reopened in 1956. Despite its small size it still continues to offer a comprehensive range of goods and unrivalled service.
