Quiet stroll.

A quiet charming walk alongside the river Severn with lovely views. Quiet; benches available for quiet contemplation. For the jam maker glorious blackberries grow in abundance.

There is nothing for the visitor apart from one bench to sit on. It was 28 degrees and we would have loved a cold drink or an ice cream - there were six of us! - but we were told that the authorities would not even allow an ice cream van to park there!!

Came here in the pouring rain so no views to ponder. Can see the dramatic levels that the tides get to and the massive drop in the lock. Would be better on a sunny day

It's an absolute prime area for the council to invest in a heritage centre and museum of the area. The views and walks are great, but it needs something of the wow factor to attract more people.

We visited by accident as we took the wrong turning at the roundabout! On arrival there seemed to be nothing much there, but we enjoyed a walk on the very blustery August afternoon. The site has plenty of information boards and is currently part of a regeneration project. We have a family link with the area going back into Victorian... More

This should be kept a secret, but unfortunately everyone knows about it! What a fantastic harbour to have within walking distance of the town of Lydney. Lovely for a stroll and a look at the boats. Good footpaths, beautiful coastline and a free car park. What's not to like?!

A really interesting place to visit and also some great walks start or end at the docks. Tranquil around the inner docks and can be blustery on the outer wall.

A truly picturesque site awaits the person who comes to Lydney Harbour for a walk. At just under a Mile the circular route takes you down past a yacht club and over one of the canal gates to face a stunning view of the Severn Estuary from Sharpness to the Severn Bridges. There are info boards and cleverly designed compass... More

Nice chilled out place, shame no toilet facilities or a place to have a drink. Lovely views to be seen and definately worth a visit. Take a pack lunch if you are going for the day as tgere are a number of species of birds to see.

Lydney harbour is such a beautiful place, it is so picturesque.. The views are stunning, and you can go on some really lovely long walks.. People you meet are always friendly too. It's a fab place to take kids for a picnic, or to walk a dog.. Definitely recommend a trip here if you're in the area.
