Lymington Ferry Terminal
Lymington ferry port offers up to 17 return crossings a day to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
Lymington is a pretty coastal town on the southern edge of the New Forest. Visitors can enjoy walks in the beautiful forest and try their hand at sailing and watersports. From the Middle Ages, Lymington has been known as a shipbuilding and trading port, and that shipbuilding industry has today developed into a yacht and boat building industry. The Town features a series of cobbled streets leading down to the main quay area, which is a popular area for visitors to sit, relax and watch the world go by. Boat trips around the Solent can be taken from the quayside and sailing, motor-boating and fishing trips can be purchased too. Lymington's sea-faring tradition continues to this day, and the town lays claim to 5-time Olympic G|old Medallist, Sir Ben Ainslie. In the wake of the 2012 London Olympics, people in Lymington were dismayed to learn that instead of Royal Mail painting one of the local letterboxes gold - in recognition of local sailing hero Ben Ainslie's sailing achievements - they had actually painted one in Cornwall (where Ben grew up) instead. This prompted a local bar owner to paint the High Street letterbox gold himself, although perhaps not to the highest standard. Eventually, Royal Mail stepped in and did the job properly, leaving Lymington with it's own souvenier of the Olympics. Lymington ferry terminal lies on the Solent, just 35 minutes away by ferry from Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
