Symonds Yat is one of the most iconic and beautiful locations in the Dean Wye. There are three distinct parts: Yat Rock, a viewpoint with incredible views over the River Wye; and the villages of Symonds Yat East and Symonds Yat West on either side of the river. The only way from one side to the other is a long drive or a passenger ferry.
Canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding are popular, guided tours can be taken, or equipment hired. The lower river has rapids making it popular with kayakers, and the area is perfect for birdwatching.
Symonds Yat East has several places to eat and stay including the picturesque Saracens Head Inn with its riverside beer garden. A footpath leads from the village up to Yat Rock. Find out more about walking routes in the area here. A river cruise with Kingfisher Cruises begins here.
Some scenes from the popular Netflix series Sex Education were filmed around Symonds Yat.
