Very peaceful, great for an early morning walk although it might be better to get to it by car. You can walk for miles along the foot path in both directions

Lydney harbour is such a great location to park up ,watch the tide come in or out, see the different sailing crafts coming and going up and down the severn and on occasions visiting the harbour, there are great walks following the severn for the young and old, with viewpoints pinpointing various locations that are of interest with literature explaining...

Nothing to do but sit and watch the river and enjoy the sunshine. No other facilities there Unfortunately the toilets were not in use. Thank goodness for Tescos a mile up the road.

I enjoy walking around Lydney harbour through the changing seasons as there always seems to be something different to take in from the views. In winter it can be quite eerie and atmospheric with the power stations in the distance, but in summer its nice to see the different wildlife and the sun shining on the Severn. I was slightly...

There really is nothing spectacular here. There is a circular walk, when you can look at information boards and try to spot distant landmarks, and there are locks and boats to look at. But it could make a relaxing afternoon's walk if you were in the area.

There has been a lot of effort put into supplying educational features around the harbour. The holes you can look through at different landmarks are specially drilled at the correct compass bearing which is great for all to see. The harbour is on several levels with a lock, views over the Severn and nearby woodland walks.

If you have an hour or so to spare, then visit Lydney Harbour. It is nicely preserved and shows the scale of the old harbour and workings. It is a rather depressing drive to get there as you have to pass derelict industrial units, but stick at it, the harbour is worth it. There are no facilities but a nice... More

An easy flat walk of @ 1 mile with seats looking across the Severn to the Severn Bridge. Only problem, toilets closed when I visited. Went to nearby Taurus Crafts for a snack. Wonderful views.

Interesting to see how life would have been when the railway was running through to the harbour and coal discharged onto barges. We enjoyed walking along the site of the old railway line, but this tourist attraction could be made much better with the provision of some toilets and a cafe at the very least.

As you approach you may well feel that you must either be on the wrong road or have made a mistake bothering to come but carry on through the industrial estate and you will be rewarded! Parking is very close to the harbour where you will also find the canal, a working lock and quite a few boats moored up.... More
