Lymington is a bustling harbor town which is a popular yachting base with two marinas, as well as a jumping off point to the Isle of Wight. It is a pleasant Georgian town with cobble stone streets and a range of quirky book shops, inns, and boutiques. The town was once known as a contraband port, and you can learn about local smugglers at the St. Barbe Museum. ATMs, banks, and shops are mainly concentrated along Georgian and Victorian High Street. Free internet is available at Lymington’s main library, located a few blocks from the train station. One of the best places to stay in town is Wistaria, a converted Georgian town house that was formerly a doctor’s office and is now an elegant inn and restaurant.
