This area has really deteriorated since we were last here
Oct 2021
About the only good thing about visiting Lydney Harbour is that the parking is free. The inner harbour is full of dilapidated boats that are really an eyesore. There is an overwhelming smell of sewage from the nearby treatment plant. The walk around the field near the harbour, which does have some interesting standing stones that form a compass, is lacking any real appeal. Some time ago rocks were positioned with 'spy holes' to identify nearby landmarks but these nearly all just point at overgrown vegetation nowadays.

Monaco has Monte Carlo and we’ve got Lydney Harbour 🙄

Truly disappointing experience. We headed down to Lydney Harbour expecting a pretty river marina with a cafe or friendly ale house nearby and found a dirty derelict boatyard off an industrial estate and apparently, no facilities. Don’t waste your time.

Well worth a visit
Oct 2021
We had read mixed reviews about Lydney Harbour but we had a lovely couple of hours there. A good walk along the river - a wide grassy open area which our dog loved. You can walk along and see the boats. Not much else to do but certainly worth a visit. Keep driving through the industrial area and there is plenty of free parking at the end by the harbour.

Great for a visit, very pretty, very peaceful, nice walks.
Sep 2021
What a brilliant place, very peaceful, bench's available, radar key for disabled people opens the gate so that the car can be parked closer, what a brilliant idea, we were able to go through and I could walk a a few steps around the harbour. Highly recommended for a visit, do not be put of by the industrial area that you drive through on the way to it. longer walks starting from this area are available too.

Beautiful views!

Beautiful walk!
Signs say that toilet block and cafe are going to be added, which will make it so much more worth a visit.
Shame there wasn’t a small playpark for younger children or a nature trail!

Hidden gem
Aug 2021
Lovely footpaths surround this hidden gem. It is nice to look at the boats moored here, plus being able to walk over the lock gates and work your way to the river and the fantastic views.

They are clearly trying to improve/develop it further, and we could see the visitor centre buildings, just a shame there no toilets available yet, something which would lift this to a 5-star score.

On the circular path-loop across the lock from the car park, there are some fabulous stone sculptures for north/sout/east.west. We loved the idea of the big rocks with the viewing holes, although half of them need the shrubbery in front trimming back as what is placarded as being viewable through the hole is blocked by the overgrowth!

Small, But Interesting Walk
Jul 2021
Interesting for a short 30 min wander around, but not much there. Some interesting history if you like that sort of thing, with good info on boards around the place.

And free parking, which is excellent news!

Lovely harbour - just needs toilets and a cafe
May 2021
Walked down there from Lydney town centre today. The views along the Severn were amazing - you could see Sharpness Docks, Berkeley and Oldbury Power Stations and as far as the oldest Severn Road bridge in the distance once the mist had cleared. There is plenty of history there with the boats on the canal and the stone circle on the footpath south of the canal going to and from Lydney town centre. For want of a perfect day there make sure you bring a picnic lunch with you as there is no cafe there at the moment even though there is talk of having one among the redevelopments. It could also do with some toilets there. If you are lucky there may be an ice cream van available for refreshments. There are also plenty of walks close to the river on either side of the harbour.

Timeless

This was a lovely little stop-off for a picnic, after doing some other local attractions with the kids. There isn't a huuuge amount to do or walk round, but if you treat it as a small part of the day (rather than a day out in itself) then it's perfect. Lots of interesting old boats to look at - some of them are a bit dilapidated and lost in time, but you either love that kind of thing or hate it (we love it). Beautiful views of the river.
