Learn about the local area with Lymington Town Tours
Walking tours on Wednesdays and Sundays in the Lymington area.
Lymington Town Tours are designed to entertain, capture the imagination and give a lasting interest in events from the past which have shaped the area we live in. They will affect the way local people and visitors view their surroundings as they go about their daily lives and hopefully add colour to the way the see the world around them.
The Tours were initially devised by a group of friends who researched local history and anecdotes from the past for fun and came to realise, after seeing tours in other locations, that they had enough material to warrant sharing this in a similar manner. So they started providing tours over 30 years ago with the founding tour of Lymington Town from its Norman origins to the present day, starting from St Thomas' church to the oldest settlement of the town, the Quay.
Tour Guides are all trained volunteers who relish the chance to take people round and share the stories which now cover a variety of walks in and around Lymington, Pennington, Milford and Buckland. They take place every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning from May to October. There is no booking system, just turn up at the meeting point detailed for each tour. There is no formal charge to join a tour but realistic donations are welcomed to help meet costs as a vountary organisation.
Lymington Town Tours also provide private walks and illustrated talks for groups. There is a charge for this service.
Full details of walks on offer can be found in our Events Calendar or on www.lymington-town-tours.co.uk - which can also be used for any queries, booking private walks or talks - or to express an interest in becoming a guide.
