Lymington

Lymington is a popular mid sized town in Hampshire. It is a small seaside port with a long history. Although there are iron age settlements in the area, Lymington was possibly founded by an Anglo-Saxon settlers, who called it limen tun (with the tun meaning farm or hamlet).
Over the centuries, in addition to localised fishing, Lymington also became associated with the production of salt. It also had a successful shipbuilding industry and the much of the town centre has Georgian and Victorian buildings. In the past, small fishing ports were also often associated with smuggling and Lymington was no exception.
The sea is still is at the heart of Lymington, but today it is best known as a sailing venue. It has 3 marinas and the Royal Lymington Cup, is part of a well known regatta. It is still a working port, with a regular ferry to the Isle of Wight.
Its proximity to the beautiful New Forest has also ensured that Lymington has become a popular tourist destination, with visitors enjoying walking on the cobbled streets or spending some time watching the boats.
