Although it was still fairly busy the queuing and loading was handled very efficiently.Because of unknown traffic conditions I arrived somewhat early for my sailing, but I was shown where I could park and wait until may sailing was due. The chap checking tickets was very helpful and gave me a time to return to check in. When I returned the queue was dealt with very quickly and were allocated a row of traffic waiting to embark. The ferry arrived fairly soon and was off loaded quite quickly, so were guided onto the ferry and then told when we could leave our car and go to the lounge. A variety of drinks and snacks were available in the lounge, with again the queues being dealt with most efficiently. On arriving at Yarmouth were told when to return to our vehicles and were quickly able to disembark and carry on with our journey. Overall a very smooth crossing and very efficient staff who made the crossing so easy. The return journey was just the same - quick and trouble free.

My family recently took our first day trip to the Isle of Wight, travelling between Lymington and Yarmouth. The facilities at Lymington were very good, clean with a Costa Coffee at the terminal, leading through to a lovely terrace overlooking the estuary. The queuing procedure was well organised but does depend on people being back in their cars at loading time, otherwise it causes delays for everyone. The ship was clean and the crossing very pleasant and only took 40 minutes. We stood on deck as the weather was good and there was plenty to see in the Solent. It was silly season for wasps which were buzzing around the waste bins, presenting a hazard for children. Parents beware! The return journey was just as efficient and this time we sat in the comfortable lounge, where there was plenty of seating and a great view. Very well organised and thoroughly recommended. Well done Wightlink!

Efficient staff throughout that could answer any query. Boarding was very quick and departed on time for both crossings. Wide range of refreshments on board at reasonable prices. Have sailed this crossing before and will continue to do so. Smaller port than the other two crossings so even in peak season it's busy but a much nicer drive through the Countryside.

The coastal town and port of Lymington is located on the west bank of the River Lymington in the county of Hampshire, England. The town, on England's south coast, is in the beautiful New Forest and faces the town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, which lies across the Solent, a narrow stretch of water between the English mainland and the Isle of Wight. Lymington is a major centre for yachting and to accommodate this the town has three marinas. The town is also host to a number of world famous regattas including the Royal Lymington Cup, Etchells Worlds, Macnamara's Bowl and Source Regatta.
Lymington's high has undergone quite a bit of change in recent years with many national chain shops and coffee shops displacing local independent shops. There is a local market, which is part of the New Forest producers market, which is held at the Masonic Hall once a month during game season. For the sailors amongst you, there are a number of maritime outfitters located in the cobbled streets that lead down to the sea.
Ferries have run from Lymington to Yarmouth since the 19th century. Since 1990 they have been operated by Wightlink. The journey time is around 40 minutes.
Yarmouth is a town located on the north west coast if the Isle of Wight and provides access to the island via the ferry services from the English mainland that use the town's harbour. The town lies on the banks of the River Yar and contains some of the oldest architecture to be found on the Isle of Wight, including a 16th century castle. The town's harbour is always a hive of activity with both ferries and smaller pleasure vessels, and there are many things to see and do in the town itself. The Grade II listed pier is a must see attraction if only to take in the lovely views across The Solent to the English mainland and is also a great place for a spot of fishing. Located to the side of the ferry dock is Yarmouth Castle and is also a great spot for fantastic sea views and is a favourite location for family picnics during the summer. Other popular pastimes are walks and exploring in the local area with two “Sites of Special Scientific Interest” nearby, the estuary of the River Yar and Bouldnor and Hamstead to the East of the town.
