Lymington is a surprisingly large hub of the arts

With its enviable location between the coastline and the forest, it is unsurprising that Lymington is a haven for artists, who range in their specialisms from traditional Forest and Solent landscapes to bold, contemporary modern art including fabulous sculptures.

The St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery, housed in the old school and currently undergoing extensive refurbishment, has wide and varied exhibitions throughout the year, whilst the Lymington Centre plays host to a number of different groups associated with the arts. Notable annual events include the Lymington Arts Festival, the Curious Arts Festival at Pylewell Park and Art in the Park along Bath Road during the summer weekends.
