Lymington’s Charter Market takes place every Saturday in the bustling High Street from 8am to 4pm and is one of the New Forest’s hidden gems. It’s a superb day out, with stalls ranging from plants, local food produce, household goods, and craft items.

There are approximately 100 stalls every week selling a manner of edible treats from olives, breads, cakes, fudge, pies, fruit and vegetables to take home with you. Don’t forget a cool bag to bring back local fish, cheeses and meats too. There is something to suit all budgets, whether looking for a hand crafted gift for a loved one or a special souvenir of your trip. Look no further than Lymington’s market for jewellery, bric-a-brac, clothes, shoes, plants and bedding. It is all there!

Visitors to Lymington should allocate a whole day to incorporate the non high street shops and boutiques, have lunch in one of the artisan restaurants or afternoon tea in a family owned cafe. Take a stroll down the famous cobbled street and watch the sailing boats and luxury yachts intermingle with the fishing fraternity.
