This is a nice spot for a winter walk, but be aware there are no railings at all, so small children should be kept away from the water side. There is a man made fall of water as the harbour gates lead into the river, I've never seen this before. When you get to the end it does open out... More

A beautiful, unspoilt location. Ideal for peaceful bracing walks with the constant yet everchanging view of the River Severn. Lacking in services however- no toilets or coffee shop but ideal for a picnic. Just make sure you take your rubbish home as also lacking in bins!

Lydney Harbour is a hidden historic Gem - a surviving 19th century industrial harbour on the edge of Gloucestershires Coal Fields - for many years its been sleeping, but its about to wake up . . many reviews here reference that apart from looking wonderful and unexpectedly beautful - there's nothing to do here - well imagine this harbour coming...

The old harbour is really nice for walking and looking at the boats, or watching the tide come in. There are also a few boards with local information and history on, but not many. There could be lot more to down there but after an hour you'll have seen, read, and done everything there is to do down there.

We came upon this in the depths of winter and it was fascinating to walk around and look across the river, e.g. toward Sharpness where we had recently been. The maps and info boards are quite helpful. Yes, it would be nicer in summer to have cafes and toilets but we hadn't expected them - just followed the brown sign.... More

We drove here thinking there would be nice little cafes to sit and have a coffee, how wrong we were. We did sit and take in the so called view. Not worth the detour

Rather disappointed when we arrived, as there were works going on to improve the parking area and in the harbour so quite a lot fenced off. Walking through to the harbour was shocked to see something so well advertised had nothing there, nothing open not even to get a cup of tea. We did wander about to ensure we hadn't... More

As I live in Lydney, I have visited this place on many, many occasions. This place is good for people of all ages; Walking, Cycling, Dog Walking, Boating, Photography or just to admire the views. It also has a Yacht Club on-site and a place to store boats. It is also a popular place for -bird watching'. The only improvements... More

It is a good walk to the harbour from Lydney centre but well worth it. The walk along the river is pleasant. The harbour is different and very visitor friendly, except there are no toilet. There is disabled persons' access from one side of the harbour to the other.

Seemed further than expected from Lydney but interesting and attractive waterside wander with some unusual rock reveals (look through the holes in the rocks).
