Lymington is the Georgian port town on the west shore of the Lymington River just off the West Solent. Close to Hurst Castle and the Needles, in the New Forest, the river faces Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, to which there is a car and passenger ferry operated by Wightlink. The ferry is positioned at end of the Lymington pier on the east side of the river, just a short walk over the bridge from Berthon’s Marina. The ferry service runs about once an hour.
There are all kinds of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs in the Lymington and the neighbouring New Forest area, including many independent and boutique shops, chandleries, sail makers and supermarkets: Waitrose, a small Tesco in the High Street, and a Marks & Spencer Food Hall. Every Saturday from 8 am until late a lively traditional market, with 100+ stalls, fills Lymington High Street. Popular with local residents, visitors and tourists alike. You can find everything you could ever want from plants, local food produce, general household goods, arts-and-crafts and bric-a-brac.
There are several marine suppliers, outfitters and chandleries in the cobbled lane heading down to the quay, you should be able to find everything for your yachting needs, and if you can’t then please don’t hesitate to talk to any of our friendly, local Dockmasters.
