    Listed below are 10 good reasons

For six consecutive Summer Sundays in Lymington, local artisans, musicians and crafters will gather together on the lawns by the Solent to share their trade, and entice the public to enjoy something different.   Including something for everybody including the little ones with children's playground and lots of entertainment.  There will be music in the Pavilion, enticing food stalls and art galore!

There are always a variety of refreshment stalls and entertainment for the younger generation. And plenty of space for your dogs. There is a wonderful view of the river Solent for visitors and locals alike, and sometimes a glimpse of the Isle of Wight.

Different entertainments each week - details to follow.

    Lymington is a pretty Georgian market town in the south of the New Forest. The town's sheltered position on the western bank of the beautiful Lymington river has made it an important settlement since the Iron Age. For many years Lymingtonians have made their living from the sea or the river - as boatbuilders, fishermen, sailors and in past centuries as salt workers and even smugglers! Today Lymington is an internationally famous yachting centre with a population of almost 17,500.


    It’s not surprising that Lymington is one of the “Best UK Coastal Towns in Which to Live”. Combined with accessible road and rail links north to London, west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton and beyond, as well as the car ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, the town combines practicality with pleasure; the perfect work-life balance. There are many excellent schools and a wealth of local sports, clubs and leisure activities.
