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.

Took a trip here with my husband and dog and I must say it was a lovely walk. It was on a weekday so I am not sure if that makes a difference but it was lovely and quiet with a few other dog walkers and visitors. Nice views across the Severn and very peaceful and relaxing. No places to... More

The history of this place is intriguing as it was once a very busy harbour. You can feel its a place steeped in history. Its a nice place to go for a walk although be warned as others mentioned there are no facilities but there are boards with information. There are great views of the Severn and what I think... More

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
