You can be assured of a traditional warm welcome when you visit the beautiful Dorset seaside resort of Swanage in Purbeck.

Swanage is a traditional Victorian seaside town, set at the heart of Purbeck and built around a beautiful bay sheltered from the north by Ballard Down and at the south, Peveril Point. Enjoy the 'blue flag' quality beach or explore the fabulous Dorset countryside. Whatever your idea of relaxation, you'll find it here.

The Isle of Purbeck, strictly speaking a peninsula not an island, with its World Heritage Jurassic Coast, offers sandy beaches, magnificent cliffs and wonderful countryside to walk. Wildlife, attractions, steam railway and boat trips - it's all here.
