Charter in Lymington

Lymington sits on the edge of the New Forest and is yet another must see place during your holiday aboard our luxury private charter boat in the Solent. It is a bustling market town with a strong boating history. It also enjoys good transport links using either rail or local busses to explore the New Forest. Remember we also have bicycles on board for your private use.

Arriving from the water the towns focal point is the small quay. A fleet of fishing boats still use Lymington and it is common to see them offloading their catch on the quayside. Walking to the town centre takes you along the cobbled street of quay hill with centuries old buildings on either side.

The High Street is well populated with a combination of the large national shops and local more specialist retailers, it also still plays host to a Saturday market. There are lots of small alleyways leading off the High Street so have a good look around. There are some excellent local shops tucked away for you to discover.

The train station is a short walk from the town quay and stops off in nearby Brockenhurst. Brockenhurst sits right in the heart of the New Forest, the perfect place from which to explore. Take one of our bikes and cycle around enjoying the countryside. Lymington is also home to the Isle of Wight ferry service but you won't have need for that given you have the use of your own private boat. Everywhere you walk in Lymington you are surrounded by history and small nooks and crannies lie waiting for you to discover.

There are a number of traditional English pubs and former coaching Inns to visit in Lymington so finding somewhere to have a drink or a bite to eat is never going to be difficult. There are also some more up market dining possibilities here, speak with your skipper who will have enjoyed a meal in most of the towns eateries. It's a hard life but someone has to do it!

After all that food a spot of exercise is order so how about this for a suggestion? An open air seawater swimming pool first used in the 1780s. One of a handful still in existence and hidden away from the majority of visitors to Lymington. We must come clean and admit to never having tried out the facilities ourselves but many others have and don't seem to have come to any harm.

Hurst point and Hurst Castle are located very close to Lymington. Part of Henry VIII's grand fortification plan the Castle is in very good order. We can take the boat close to the castle, anchor up and then pop the tender in so you can explore at your leisure. Alum Bay is also close by on the other side of the Hurst channel.
