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.

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.

Egans Restaurant by Greg Hanson
Brought the wife here a couple of weeks ago and promised myself to leave a review as we had a fantastic meal. So here it is: Great food, lovely and friendly service, not to far to walk back to the marina.

The Mayflower by Kim Luke and Sally
Tried the restaurant for the first time since the new owners and we were very impressed. Extremely clean and neat decor, with a imaginative menu. Not seen the rooms, but spoke to someone at the bar who was staying and he said they are beautiful.

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.

The Yacht Catering Company by Albert Luescher
Do not touch them with a barge pole. My elderly parents booked them for an event catering to all the guys who built their annex. All agreed. Time and all. They never showed up. We ended having a good night at the Jolly Farmer. Their response after? We emailed and never heard back. Sorry, spoke on phone and asked if we needed to pay a deposit.
