Swanage is a traditional seaside town, bursting with character and old fashioned charm.

Stroll along the old fashioned pier, watch Punch and Judy on the beach or relax in a deck chair as you take in the views. A swim in the sea is a necessity, while a boat trip around the bay is always a delight.  

As well as a town centre with unique curiosity shops, there is also a vintage steam railway. Swanage Steam Railway runs trips daily from April to October to Corfe Castle and Norden.

If you want to visit Durlston Country Park, hop on the Durlston Explorer (D5), running during the summer holidays only.

You can catch the 40 from Poole or 50 from Bournemouth directly to Swanage. Use the Journey Planner on our website or app to plan a journey to Swanage today.
