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.

we have been here before but on our own boat, very impressed with harbour, people very friendly , local pub but wanted to see it going by car. Lydney it'self a small town, yes journey down to harbour looks disappointing as industrial estates on the left. But we kept going knowing harbour was there. Parked up.Then walked towards the Severn... More

Had a lovely walk around the harbour this morning. It didn't look too promising as we drove in thinking we were heading for an industrial site, but perseverance paid off. Very interesting place with great views across the river.

For the first day of Spring we enjoyed a leisurely walk around the harbour basin, lock and sea wall. Quite a shame to see so many neglected yachts that could so easily be transformed to their former glories. Full of charm and character and totally devoid of modern commercialisation, a very pleasant spot to meander around and take in the... More

It's interesting to try to imagine what the harbour was like in its industrial heyday. Visiting the outer harbour at low tide, we were impressed by the huge tidal range of the Severn. Our only complaint was that there is little information available regarding the sites history.
