Lymington FerryLymington Quay HillLymington Town Quay

Lymington is situated at the western end of the Solent in an attractive  estuary flanked by salt marshes.  The beautiful Georgian market town is surrounded by the ancient woodlands and heathlands of the New Forest and there are plenty of interesting independent shops as well as good pubs and restaurants to tempt you ashore.  Browse in the market held in the High Street every Saturday and, if you are feeling more energetic, you can walk the coastal path or cycle in the New Forest.

With two large marinas and plenty of moorings, the harbour is home port for thousands of pleasure craft of all shapes and sizes and the Town Quay is still used as a base by commercial fishing boats.  As a result a comprehensive range of marine services is available here.  Lymington is also one of the most popular destinations on the south coast of England for visiting craft.
