Discover Milford on a Guided Walk

Lymington Town Tours operate a number of interesting walking tours of Lymington and the surrounding area, this includes Milford on Sea and the tours below may be of interest:

Walk The Story of Milford

The old hamlet of Milford was mentioned in the Domesday Book: a few houses around a green and a watermill, having about 50 inhabitants. Nothing changed very much for centuries until the late Victorian age, when it decided to change its image.....

Stroll through the village of Milford-on-Sea and its lovely wooded Pleasure Grounds while your guide relates how the sleepy hamlet of Milford tried to live down its smuggling days and changed its name to try to rival genteel Eastbourne. Hear the story of the string of pearls seven yards long....

NOTE: This walk takes about 1¾ hours and includes some footpaths. The footpath by the Mill Pond and woods would be unsuitable for wheelchairs.

This walk starts on the Village Green and finishes on the cliff top at the Beach House.

Walk Milford - Voices from The Grave

So many interesting people are buried in Milford churchyard – far too many to include in our Story of Milford walk! So this walk gives us more time to tell you all about them.

Hear the stories of the Torpedo Man, the Battling Bishop, the Royal Scandal, the Murderous Pearl-Maker, and many more.

We will also look at the memorials inside the church if it is open.

Walk starts at the Lych-gate, All Saints Church, Milford-on-Sea, and explores the church and churchyard.

7pm: 30th May 2018 | Other dates available, please click here.

Please Note: All our guides are volunteers and Lymington Town Tours have no official financial backing, so they do welcome a realistic donation at the end of the walk to cover their running costs.
