Information
LYMINGTON

Situated on the shores of the Solent at the southern edge of the New Forest, the picturesque Georgian market town of Lymington is a world famous sailing resort. Each year thousands of visiting seafaring types are amply catered for by two sizeable world-class marinas and two sailing clubs. The Old town Quay is popular with tourists and offers private sailing instruction, motor boating, fishing trips and ferry rides to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. There is also a 19th century open-air heated swimming pool just a short walk from the quayside.

The High Street is reached via a series of unique cobbled streets and is overlooked by the 13th century St. Thomas’ Parish Church. Lined with designer boutiques, independent outlets, gift shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, the High Street also plays host to Saturdays bustling street market. There are also several parks in and around the town and a state of the art leisure centre. For those who desire a bit of outdoor adventure there is, of course a magnificent 145 square miles of the New Forest on the doorstep.

An absolutely beautiful town with more than enough to keep the discerning visitor happy, Lymington makes an ideal destination for a seaside holiday and a perfect kicking off point from which to explore the fascinating Hampshire coast.

Really found this guide helpful on our recent visits. One or two of the businesses were now closed, but had only recently done, so cant really criticise you for that.
Other than that its been a really great help
Thanks

The Mayflower Restaurant
Lovely bar restaurant with an interesting menu. Really close to the marina. We were told that it had recently undergone a major refurbishment, its to a very high standard. Didnt see the hotel rooms, but if they are on a par with the bar and the food, then they will be perfect.
See you again soon.

Best restaurants in Lymington:
Hi we used your site when we were in Gibraltar and found it very useful. We were impressed with the marine services section, as we needed them quite a lot. But to be honest we used the restaurant and hotel guide section more. I hope you show a large selection of restaurants bars and hotels on this Lymington guide as although we do need marine services, charts, weather etc. and all the other informative information you provide, pubs restaurants and hotels are equally as important.
Rant over, keep up the good work!

Terrible news about the Binoculars being stolen from the yacht club. They are German Carl Zeiss Binoculars used by the German Military in WW2.If you have any ideas about who might have taken them, please contact the yacht club on the number below.

Would just like to say that we have sailed in the Med for most of our sailing lifes (Frightened of tides) and have just returned to good old England, Lymington to be more precise. All I can say is WHY DIDNT WE DO IT SOONER!!
This is truly a fantastic sailing ground, and with the weather we are having, I wouldnt want to be anywhere else in the world.
Love your site by the way.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

What a wonderful find! Had superb light lunch here and wished we had known it existed before we booked dinner elsewhere as the Sunday lunches looked to die for! Roaring fire added to whole visit - well worth the detour even if you are not a yachtsman!

The Monkey House by Helen and John
Nice pub just a short trip from the marina. Great alternative to staying around the marina bars and restaurants. The owner could be Elton Johns brother (you will get the joke when you see him) Younger brother by the way.

The Mayflower by Steve and Richard
Called in here on our way to the Isle of Wight. Been refurbished to a high standard, at first We thought it had lost a little of its character, but after being in there for half an hour we felt comfortable and the old pub still keeps its personality.

The Mayflower by Sarah and John Roberts
Wow! First time we have been here since the refurb.. Lost non of its character, great food. We were a little concerned when we herd that it had been taken over, but the reality is the opposite.Although the pub was run well before, we feel the time was right for a change.
Not seen the rooms yet but apparently they are fab too.
