Lymington is a port on the Solent, in the New Forest district of Hampshire. It is to the east of the Bournemouth conurbation, and faces Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Lymington was known as Lentune in the Domesday book. During the middle ages it had a thriving shipbuilding business. Lymington was well known for smuggling in years gone by due to the winding river and many subterranean passages from the quay. It is now a haven for yachting enthusiasts, who enjoy the advantages of the double tides, with it's marina edged with shops full of sea faring clothes and plenty of places to eat and drink. Cobbled streets and 17th century houses make Lymington a must for visitors. The large church at the top of the High Street, St Thomas's which dates back to the 12th century, once had a curate, Henry Lyte, who wrote many famous hymns including "Abide with me". Much of the town centre is Victorian and Georgian.
