Symonds Yat Rock

Viewpoint in Forest of Dean

Soaring 504m high above Symonds Yat East, this limestone outcrop has outstanding wraparound views of the River Wye and the surrounding countryside. It's a favourite spot for birdwatchers; you may be lucky enough to spot the resident pair of peregrine falcons as they whoosh by the drop-off. Walk up from Symonds Yat East, and you’ll find a kiosk atop the rock selling drinks and snacks. Peaceful walking trails continue east through the forest.
