Welcome to Swanage

Swanage is a popular, traditional seaside town on England’s south coast, that attracts many visitors throughout the year but is especially busy during the summer.

Where is Swanage?

Swanage is located on the south coast of England in Dorset. It lies to the west of Poole Harbour and Bournemouth and to the east of Weymouth. From Dorchester, it’s a 25-mile drive in a southeast direction. It’s on the Isle of Purbeck and famous for being part of the Jurassic Coast.

Arrive by car

The most flexible way to arrive is by car but in the summer months, the roads are very busy and so it’s best to avoid traveling at peak times. There are two directions to get to Swanage by car, either via Wareham or take the Sandbanks Ferry from Poole to Studland.

Buses, taxis and Wareham Railway Station

Buses run from Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth and you can also get a bus or taxi from Wareham Railway station – Swanage’s nearest mainline station. There is also the Swanage Railway, but as a heritage line, it only currently runs from Norden to Swanage.
