Lymington Town Tours: Sea, Salt & Smuggling

Take this walk along the waterfront and find out how important the river has always been to the town of Lymington. From a time when the Quay was a very rough working area with sailing ships bringing coal in to fuel the salt making industry and then shipping the salt all over the world.

Another source of wealth in the town up until the Victorian era was smuggling and Daniel Defoe found the town ‘teeming with smugglers and all sorts of desperados’.

In Victorian times Lymington was also a fashionable spa for sea water bathing and its renaissance as a place of leisure and enjoyment began.

This walk begins at the Town Quay and ends at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club, Bath Road
