Good car park at the harbour with excellent views across the river severn. Good to say when tide is in or out with excellent information showing you what to see on the opposite side of the river. Great spot to see up the river or down to the sea. The walking area down from the harbour again provides information of... More

We parked the car adjacent to the historic harbour which was used for commercial purposes until recently .The structure is in good repair however there are quite a number of semiderilict sailing boats some with torn sails or even rotting ,a good subject for an artist .

Walked here from Lydney Junction station, about a mile or so. Not worth the effort really. Nice views over the Severn Estuary to the Power Station on the other side. Not a pub, cafe or Kiosk at the harbour.

Lydney Harbour is at the end of an industrial estate but is well worth a visit. The views across the Severn are wonderful and the history of the site is well signed. The walks across the lock gate are good with safe areas for children and dogs. The only down side is that there is no cafe or toilets, but... More
