A beautiful Georgian market town, Lymington is situated on the southern edge of the New Forest at the western end of the Solent. There are many excellent reasons to visit Lymington and its scenic harbour and we pride ourselves on providing a friendly welcome to all.
As well as the picturesque visitors’ moorings at Town Quay, the harbour is a popular all year venue for recreational boating. There is a full programme of racing and regattas during the summer, organised by the local sailing and rowing clubs.
We have continued to invest in our visitor facilities and from February 2012 our Dan Bran pontoon will have power on all visitor berths. This 650ft long pontoon is unique in the Solent as a walk ashore destination where rallies of up to 50 (10m) boats can be moored together thus making for a real party atmosphere! Just a short ten minute walk from the Town Centre this facility is adjacent to the Mayflower Inn, Lymington Town Sailing Club and Royal Lymington Yacht Club.
The town itself is full of interesting small shops, designer boutiques plus various food outlets and supermarkets together with a good selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes. On Saturdays an all year market is held in the High Street, the origins of which date back to the 13th century. This is also great to visit in November and December when the festive atmosphere is in full swing. From the bottom of the High Street a quaint cobblestone road leads down to the Old Town Quay.
If you love the country then the New Forest National Park with its ancient woodlands and heathlands offers miles of unspoilt walks, cycle ways and pretty villages.
This guide is designed to provide you with the local information you need, however if you need any further assistance or advice, our friendly staff will be pleased to help.
Have a great time in Lymington and I hope to see you again soon!
