Welcome to the NEW Lymington Harbour Website


I would like to extend a very warm welcome from Lymington Harbour and the town.

Lymington River and its approaches offer a safe haven for all visiting yachtsmen. We have a beautiful river and harbour area, and we pride ourselves on offering a friendly and professional welcome to all visitors. All the mooring and berthing facilities are now detailed in this new and comprehensive website.

The historic market town is just a short walk from the river and full of interesting shops, designer boutiques, pubs, cafes, restaurants and accommodation. The Saturday market, dating back to the 13th century, is held on the High Street and is continuingly popular throughout the year.

The New Forest National Park, with its beautiful ancient woodlands and heathlands, is practically on our doorstep, and offers miles unspoiled walking trails, cycle ways and classic English villages to explore and enjoy. It’s no wonder these majestic woodlands inspired Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien.

I hope you have a great visit and will come back and see us again soon! 


Ryan Willegers
Harbour Master & Chief Executive
