Swanage is a great holiday destination with its bustling town, beautiful sandy beach and wonderful scenery. Attractions include its world famous Jurassic coastline giving walks to Old Harry Rocks and Durlston Castle, the delightful Swanage Railway, regular folk, jazz and blues music weekends, and not forgetting the Carnival & Regatta week in August.
Being a seaside town, Swanage has got plenty of trinket shops, and there are two supermarkets. There is a huge choice of cafes and restaurants, and you can browse the menus in the windows.
Swanage bay has over a mile of sandy beach (complete with a Punch & Judy show in the summer months). The Steam Train runs to and from Norden, just beyond the picturesque village of Corfe. There are boat trips to Old Harry Rocks, and to Bournemouth and Poole. The open top buses will take you to Bournemouth via the Sandbanks ferry. Other activities include fossil-hunting on the cliffs, walking over Ballard Down and along the South West coast path. There is a Tourist Office on the seafront.
Swanage is a musical mecca and during the year it hosts blues, jazz and folk festivals. The Carnival & Regatta week at the beginning of August will delight everyone, young and old, and wonderful firework displays are held on Saturdays throughout August.
