The Lymington Town Tours Walks
Three words give you the history of Lymington in a nutshell Smuggling, Salt and Sailing. If you would like to know more then simply join us and let our guides take you on a fascinating walk through the town and it's history.
Our walks take you on a journey through the history of Lymington from the Iron Age fort at Buckland Rings right through to the present day thriving centre for yachting and tourism. It was following the Norman Conquest in 1066 that Lymington, as we know it today, came into being.
Lymington, one of the first ‘new towns’ to be planned by the Normans, still hosts a vibrant market every Saturday, a tradition which has continued for some 800 years from when the town was laid out as a centre for trade in around 1200. It is commonly believed to be the oldest continuous market in Great Britain and continues to draw people from far and wide to its wide High Street and colourful market stalls.
