The picturesque port of Yarmouth has grown up around the natural harbour at the mouth of the river Yar and is guarded by Yarmouth Castle, built by Henry VIII to protect the Solent from invading forces in 1547.  Its pier is Grade II listed and is the longest timber pier in the country still open to the public.  Visitors can enjoy wandering the meandering streets of the town with a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants or walking or cycling in the surrounding countryside.

Despite being a relatively small harbour, Yarmouth is a very popular cruising destination and its close proximity to the Needles makes it ideal for those entering or leaving the Solent.  There are several boatyards and most repairs and marine services are available here.
