Swanage, the most quintessential of seaside towns, began life as a small fishing village before flourishing as a quarry port in the Victorian era. That said, Swanage is mentioned in historical texts dating as far back as 877!
Now a thriving tourist destination, visitors were first encouraged to the Swanage area in the early 19th Century when a local MP converted a mansion house into a hotel.
Situated towards the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, Swanage Bay shelters the town and provides ideal conditions for swimming and water sports. Along with the sandy, Blue Flag beach, Swanage continues to attract summertime visitors year after year. The town is also famous for its heritage steam and diesel train service, Swanage Railway, which offers passengers a unique journey through the Dorset countryside between Swanage and Corfe Castle.
As with most areas of Dorset, Swanage is surrounded by fabulous walking opportunities. As local Swanage estate agents some of our favourites include Old Harry Rocks – three coastal chalk formations approximately a mile and a half north east of the town – and Dancing Ledge, a flat area of rock at the base of the cliffs approximately two and half miles from Swanage, into which an outdoor swimming pool was blasted for the use of local school children at the beginning of the 20th Century. In the town itself, national stores, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants (and ice cream!) abound. Swanage also offers a comprehensive program of events throughout the year, from music events and festivals to the annual carnival and regatta.
