Yarmouth Guide

The town of Yarmouth is located on the western part of the Isle of Wight, which is just off the south coast of mainland England. It is one of the smallest towns in the United Kingdom with a population of just 791 in 201. This compares to a population of around 600 at the beginning of the 19th century. The town takes its name from its location at the mouth of the Western Yar River. Today at Yarmouth there is a bridge over the Yar River but originally it was the location of a ferry that crossed the river which was in operation until the bridge was built in 1863.

The town's small port still has some boat yards and chandlery and supports a number of local businesses, including shops, restaurants and hotels, that rely on the passing trade coming from the ferry's and yachts that use the harbour. A popular attraction in the town is the 16th century Yarmouth Castle which is now maintained by English Heritage. It is effectively a gun platform built by Henry VIII to strengthen the Solent and protect the Isle of Wight, historically an important strategic foothold for any attempted invasion of England.

From the town's harbour, a ferry service operates to Lymington in Hampshire, on the English mainland.

Lymington Guide

Lymington is a town and harbour lies on the west bank of the Lymington River and on the Solent, and is located in the New Forest in the county of Hampshire, England. The town's proximity to the New Forest and its harbour has made it a very popular tourist destination. The town is actually home to three marinas and has a famous maritime history and in recent years it has hosted some famous international sailing regattas including the Royal Lymington Cup, Etchells Worlds, Macnamara's Bowl and Source Regatta. The strong tides of the Solent make sailing off Lymington's coast a challenge and the relatively shallow depth of the Lymington River has meant that some of the regattas have now moved across the Solent to Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Ferries have run from Lymington to Yarmouth since the 19th century. Since 1990 they have been operated by Wightlink and have a crossing time of around 40 minutes.
