Family Portrait Photographer – Symmonds Yat
Symonds Yat Rock is a scenic viewpoint towering 120 metres above the river on the Gloucestershire side.
From this viewpoint it is possible, between April and August, to witness a pair of Peregrine Falcons nesting on the cliff side. Volunteers from the RSPB help visitors to use telescopes provided in a joint project with Forest Enterprise, owners of the site.
Popular tourist activities in the area include canoeing down the rapids, boat trips, a maze, an oriental garden and many country pubs. The Old Court Hotel in Symonds Yat West was the ancestral home of the Gwillim family and was home to John Graves Simcoe who was governor and one of the founding fathers of Upper Canada.
A favourite pastime for many of the local children is to swim across the river to a small rock on the other side from the renowned hotel, although attempting this in early May while the Spring tides are at their maximum is not advised.
