Photographer's Note

LYMINGTON HARBOUR is an attractive estuary two miles long with the entrance channel lying between salt marshes. It is shared by yachtsmen, fishermen and the Isle of Wight ferry. I was on the ferry coming into Lymington when this photo was taken.

There are two marinas, the ferry terminal and at the Town Quay room for up to 100 visiting boats within two minutes walk of the town centre.

The town has a wide variety of shops from picturesque boutiques on the cobbled quay to the larger supermarkets and a bustling market in the High Street every Saturday. The Georgian and Victorian architecture and the varied and colourful history help to create a distinctive quaintness.

There is much to do. The coastal path on the Solent Way is a pleasant walk; you could go fishing along the sea wall; hire a bike and cycle in the surrounding New Forest; take a ferry trip to the Isle of Wight; swim in the indoor or outdoor swimming pools; learn some of the history at the St. Barbe Museum; buy an antique or find a bargain in the Saturday market. All this within walking distance of your boat. The restaurants and hostelries, too numerous to mention, provide food from around the world.
