Evidence of people living in the area surrounding present-day Lymington dates back to the Iron Age. The town itself, however, owes its origins to the Anglo-Saxons.

During this time, Lymington was but a small, seemingly insignificant village. The Jutes arrived here from the Isle of Wight in the 6th century, naming the place “Limentun”. By the Domesday Book of 1086, this had changed to “Lentune”.

For several hundreds of years, Lymington was famous for salt-manufacturing. By the 19th century, a thriving shipbuilding industry took hold, with much of the settlement’s architecture originating from this era.

More recently, a documentary dubbed this much-loved location “the best town on the coast” in the UK for living. It’s easy to see why. On your next visit, be sure to stop at an Afternoon Tea Lymington venue for lunch. You won’t be disappointed.
