Nestled in the New Forest district of Hampshire is the charming port town of Lymington. The town lies on the Lymington River and is a haven for outdoorsy people -- the New Forest is a fantastic place for hiking and biking, while the range of golf courses attracts visitors looking to perfect their swing. Of course, being a coastal town means Lymington has a maritime history and boasts beautiful marinas.
The New Forest National Park is the main attraction for visitors to Lymington and for good reason. There is plenty of hiking trails and biking routes to enjoy through the beautiful British landscape. The Solent Way trail has over 60 miles to explore, with unforgettable views as visitors follow the coast of the Solent.
Elsewhere, tourists love to unwind after a long day at the Lymington Open Air Sea Water Baths, which were first built way back in 1833. For a leisurely stroll, head to the Lymington Yacht Haven and visit Hurt Castle to learn about history and see the 1544 fortress to brush up on your history of the town.
One of the most popular times to visit Lymington is during the summer months when the sun is out and the skies are blue.
