The Dean Forest is a haven for walkers, cyclist and real ale enthusiasts alike. The Forest Railway branch line takes visitors through Lydney town centre, where you can visit St. Briavels Castle, the harbour or take a stroll around the famous park gardens. You can stop off at Nochard with its museum, cafeteria, woodland and line side walks. Or you can visit Parkend which offers a delightfully restored station, village with real ale pubs, forest walks, a RSPB nature reserve and cycle ways.
The Dean Forest Railway's Lydney Junction is less than ten minutes walk from Lydney station. You just exit Lydney station and walk north up the road towards the signal box. You will see the entrance to the Dean Forest Railway just before you arrive at the signal box on your right.
Please note, unlimited travel is not permitted on the CrossCountry portion of your travel ticket.
