Beverley is one of the members of our customer service team. A walking font of all knowledge she knows everything there is to know about scooters and accessories.
This family scooter route enables you to explore a beautiful seaside town in the New Forest.
After your scoot to town, why not take a trip to Lymington Sea Water baths? The oldest Lido in the UK. It’s right next to Bath Road car park and located on Bath Road itself.
Round trip: Approx. 1.9 miles
Start at Bath Road Carpark, Lymington SO41 3SE
Important information: This scooter routes takes you along pavements which run alongside a single carriageway with one small section uphill on cobbles. Pavements are narrow in places. Lymington High street is on an incline.
Bath Road carpark is situated by Lymington yachting club. There is also a large children’s play area and an area to stretch the legs of your four legged friend, at the recreation ground, moments from the car park.
Head along Bath Road away from the car park with the recreation ground on your right.
Stick to the pavement as you pass Berthon Boat Yard on your right. Be careful as the pavement is narrow in places.
Travel straight onto Quay Road and next on your journey you’ll arrive at the Quayside, ideal for crabbing!Forgot your net? Don’t panic, supplies can be purchased from newsagent’s quayside.Here you’ll also find public toilets including baby change facilities, seating areas to munch your picnic and an ice cream parlour too.
Scoot along the cobbled back street past the Kings Head pub. As you turn the corner the incline becomes steep, so any unconfident scooter riders may want to jump off at this point.
You’re now in the heart of Lymington town centre and the pavements are smooth again. From here cross the road (be careful it can get busy) and head up the high street. Then shop till your hearts content among boutiques, shabby chic antiques, coffee shops and the market if you’re lucky enough to visit on a Saturday.
Getting back is easy, either retrace your steps or when you reach the cobbles at the bottom of the high street turn right into Captains Row. Go as far as the crossroads and head straight on into Queen Katherine Road. Then head over again at the next crossroads into Westfield Road. Travel to the end and take a left into King’s Saltern Road. Scoot back to the car park which you’ll reach at the end of this road.
