PURBECK BREEZER 40
Swanage to Poole - via Langton Matravers, Corfe Castle, Wareham, Sandford Holiday Park, Farmer Palmers, Upton
Is home to the largest natural harbour in Europe. Visit the Quay and enjoy some of Poole’s finest seafood. The Quay has many events during the summer and during the school holidays, even fireworks can be enjoyed for free. From the Quay, you can take a ferry ride around the harbour or take a trip to Brownsea Island, and see if you can spot a red squirrel. Brownsea is a national trust property so entrance fees do apply. The quay connects to the town’s high street and links through to the Dolphin shopping centre.
Just a short stroll from the Bus Station you will find the hidden gem Poole Park with crazy golf, an adventure playground and a large lake to enjoy pedalos and paddle boards.
A pretty riverside town with quayside restaurants, cafes and a museum. Market stalls can be found there on a Saturday too and a trip can be taken along the river by boat.
In our opinion from the top deck of a bus, this is a real WOW moment! The breathtaking outline of the fairy-tale ruins of the castle appears into view as you glimpse towards the village of Corfe. The castle played a historical role dating back to William the Conqueror’s day. Corfe is a quaint village with many local pubs and cafes to enjoy.
The castle is owned by the National Trust and entrance charges do apply.
Although the Purbeck Breezer doesn’t stop directly at Arne you can get a link at Wareham Rail Station, Wareham Town Centre or Stoborough to Dorset Community Transport service no 2RN (seasonal from May to August) to this beautiful Nature Reserve.
RSPB Arne is a very special place for both people and wildlife. Situated on Poole Harbour it is an area of outstanding natural beauty. This service is not operated by us so additional fares will apply and entrance to the nature reserve is chargeable. More information
Still has that traditional seaside feel, where Punch and Judy can be watched on the beach, sandcastles dug, and sun loungers hired. Experience a trip on the traditional Swanage steam railway, or take a walk up to Durlston Country Park and continue exploring the Isle of Purbeck. We also think there are some of the best local fish and chip shops around.
To experience a great day out on our Breezer services we recommend you buy a zone C dayrider where you can hop on and off all day and transfer from route to route. These are available for individuals or groups of up to 5 people travelling together.
However, if you are going just there and back all single bus fares are currently reduced to just £2 until 30 June. Check out our fares page for zone maps and prices
