Travel Tips for Lymington

The ancient seaport and...

by Tolik

The ancient seaport and historic market, town of Lymington was once greater importance than Portsmouth and played a major part in defending the south coast against the French invasion. The High Street is full of interesting shops and on every Saturday becomes a hive of activity when it is lined with market stalls selling everything from vegetables to fabric and tools to antiques.

Bustling but relaxing.

by colin_bramso

The international yacht marina is a fascinating place to sit and relax while you watch the yachts berthing or leaving. There's plenty of activity on them, but it's very relaxing for you! Many are local yachts, but there are always some from Europe too.
You'll also see fishermen, ferries to and from the Isle of Wight and tour boats, so there's plenty going on to keep you interested.

Pretty wildflowers.

by colin_bramso

Around Hatchet Pond is great area for walking. It's pretty flat and not heavily wooded so it's quite easy. There are things of interest all over the place, not just the wild animals but in spring and summer a carpet of very pretty wildflowers.

Carnival time

by thisisbanane

Each August Lymington holds a carnival along the high street, followed by a fun fair on Pennington Common. On bank holiday weekend, there is also a carnival procession through Milford on Sea, and this creates a bit of rivalry!

Milford's carnival is usually longer and better, and there are stalls and games on the village green throughout the day. People go to greater effort in Milford, with bigger floats. Three years ago, the council invited members of the Notting Hill carnival to come down and finish off the procession - really amazing. They then had to rush back to London for their carnival the next day!

I'll take a couple of photos of them this summer, so you can see for yourself.

Sailing

by thisisbanane

Lymington is probably best known for its sailing and there are 2 main yacht clubs - The Royal Lymington Yacht Club (RLYC) and the Lymington Town Yacht Club. There is some healthy rivalry between the members of the two but both are pretty good. RLYC is the main club of the town though and Princess Anne is a patron. There is also a small club for children called The Salterns, but it is a teaching club and you really do have to be a member to use the facilities. There are club boats at the RLYC but you have to be a member to use them, however, th club runs a scheme where members of various other clubs around the world are automatically members of the Royal. There is a good bar and restaurant.
