117 High Street
Rohan Lymington is on the North side of Lymington High Street. The building dates back to the 1800s and deep below is part of a network of smuggler’s tunnels, from the days when the port of Lymington was used for smuggling!"
Lymington is perhaps best known for yachting with many past and present Olympians living in the area. The port town also has a ferry terminal linking with Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
Lymington High Street has several independent shops and designer boutiques, as well as a local market held each Saturday which dates back to the 13th century. At the bottom of the High Street, a cobbled road leads down to the Old Town Quay, which is a lovely spot to watch the boating world come and go. From here, you can take a stroll along the water’s edge and soak up the atmosphere of this renowned sailing resort.
Lymington is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the New Forest, where opportunities for outdoor activities are abundant. The Solent Way footpath provides a great coastal walk with fantastic views of the Needles and the Isle of Wight. The store team’s favourite walk is between Lymington and Keyhaven across the old salt marshes alongside the Solent, stopping for refreshments at The Gun Inn at Keyhaven.
Not forgetting that Lymington is home to 19th century open sea water baths - the oldest of its kind in the UK. These baths are popular throughout the summer months, and are an important part of the town’s history.
