Come to the beautiful town of Lymington!

Lymington provides a wonderful backdrop to your sailing event. The picturesque Town Quay and High Street are just a 10 minute walk from the Royal Lymington Yacht Club, with all the shops you could need. The famous Charter Market takes in the High Street every Saturday throughout the year. Two well-equipped chandleries and are just a short walk away from the club.

Located next door to the Clubhouse, the historic Lymington Sea Water Baths are open during the summer months for swimming and inflatable fun. Excellent walks around the Solent Way to Hurst Castle and Milford on Sea (known locally as the sea wall) start at the slipway, taking in the breath-taking views of the Lymington-Keyhaven Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Lymington Town Station is 10 minutes from the Club and the Wight Link ferry takes car and foot passengers from Lymington to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Find out more here. 

A wide variety of family-friendly activities are avabilable in the local area, with beaches and the New Forest National Park on our doorstep.
