Lymington: Georgian market town and famous yachting centre

Lymington High Street

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. Find out more about Lymington.

It’s not surprising that Lymington is one of the “Best UK Coastal Towns in Which to Live”. Combined with accessible road and rail links north to London, west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton and beyond, as well as the car ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, the town combines practicality with pleasure; the perfect work-life balance. There are many excellent schools and a wealth of local sports, clubs and leisure activities.

The town has a large tourist industry, based on proximity to the New Forest and its harbour. There is holiday accommodation to suit all budgets and tastes; excellent hotels, pubs with rooms, bed and breakfasts, self catering holiday cottages, holiday parks, campsites - you can even stay in one of the marinas on a luxury yacht!
