To the mainland

The mainland is full of family fun, whether you want to keep it closer to home, with day trips to the New Forest or Portsmouth, or you’d rather spend the day seeing the sights of London. We’ll get you across the Solent in no time at all, with handy rail links found within moments of our Lymington and Portsmouth Harbour ports.
