With its milder climate, being on the South West Coast of England, Swanage enjoys pleasant springs; comfortable Autumns; several hot, sunny periods in Summer; and cool, rather than biting cold Winters, making it a year-round destination for visitors and residents.

Being a bay, Swanage remains relatively sheltered all year, and many inland areas of the Isle of Purbeck are protected by the Purbeck Hills that rise around the villages, woodlands and farmland dotted about. 

You can check Swanage’s webcams to see how the area looks at different times of year, or to keep connected to your favourite places after visiting.
