“Messing about on the River- Symmonds Yat.”

Symonds Yat West Leisure Park
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I love going on boat rides and on a sunny afternoon going to Symmonds Yat and having a ride on a boat up the river is absolutely delightful. Reasonable price and good commentary.
You have to pay for parking and the amenities there were limited. Bathroom facilities were in the slot machine building but were clean and free. There were a few places to sit but only one place to buy food and one place for ice cream and drinks. Prices were reasonable and cheaper than I expected as there was no competition. There is grass you can sit on for a picnic if it is not too crowded. I would prefer to be there outside of the Bank holidays and mid summer as it would be a bit of a nightmare for me too many people means long queues. There are pubs and hotels just before the entrance into the field.

Interesting journey to the Yat but the view is worth the scary drive.
The river was in flood so the boat trips down the river were cancelled. Plenty of places for a coffee and cake.

I was staying locally and popped. A bit tacky really, the amusement arcade was full of penny push machines and very little else... Kids might enjoy it...

Stopped off to have a coffee and walk the dog. The cafe was run by teenagers who obviously did not know how to make a hot drink when asked what is there to do around the area they were completely blank !! Popped my head in the over extremely noisy arcade just out of curiosity as to why it was banging out awful noise at 11.30 am when two staff started screaming that the dog was not allowed Yes they had to scream to be heard but they did not have to be rude with it! Obviously no customer skills there !!!

Well worth a visit with kids or dogs or both, especially if you are fit enough for steep walks, with beautiful views. There are toilets in the car park and a café near the viewpoint
