...a great stepping off point...


Lymington is a bustling & attractive Georgian market town with a wide variety of shops & picturesque boutiques.



At the western end of the Solent it is just three miles from the Needles Channel and on the southern edge of the New Forest.

It is well sheltered and accessible at all states of the tide, proving a popular destination.



The Georgian and Victorian architecture and the varied and colourful history helps to create a distinctive quaintness drawing visitors back time and again.

The restaurants and hostelries are too numerous to mention!



There are two marinas Lymington Yacht Haven and Lymington Marina both of which are within walking distance of the town centre and provide all the facilities and services one would expect of a leading yacht centre.

But if you want to absorb the atmosphere in the very centre of town, go right in to the Town Quay where facilities are limited but charges very reasonable.
