  • LYMINGTON:
    GEORGIAN MARKET TOWN AND FAMOUS YACHTING CENTRE

    Lymington is a pretty Georgian market town in the south of the New Forest. The town's sheltered position on the western bank of the beautiful Lymington river has made it an important settlement since the Iron Age. For many years Lymingtonians have made their living from the sea or the river - as boatbuilders, fishermen, sailors and in past centuries as salt workers and even smugglers! Today Lymington is an internationally famous yachting centre with a population of almost 17,500.
