At the bottom of the High Street is Quay Hill a cobbled stone street that leads down to Lymington Town Quay. In bygone days Lymington Quay was a busy commercial port exporting great quantities of salt to Newfoundland, importing coal for the salt industry, rum from the West Indies and timber from Norway for shipbuilding. Today about 12 commercial fishing boats operate out of the Quay, and there are around 100 berths for visiting boats. Lymington Rowing Club is situated close to the quay; it is a common site to see them launch their boats on the slipway. The Puffin ferry operates from the quay with a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and other cruises.
