Travel Tips for Swanage

Worth the walk

by Ken-out-of-Bath

If you walk along the coastal path, away from Swanage you will eventually come across this Globe, built by "Mr" Mowlam. Mowlam owned a construction company that still builds roads and public buildings all across the UK.

The walk to the Globe is reward enough for your efforts, the views out to sea are wonderful, but, because not many people get this far, it is a great place to sit and reflect upon how the world has changed.

For example, the Globe was constructed in 1903, so there is no Serbia or Croatia, not even Yugoslavia - the Balkan region is just Austria, Greece or Turkey!

Swanage seaside town

by LouiseTopp

Swanage is a lovely part of Dorset with great views across the bay towards Poole and Bournemouth. Every August 27th July to 3rd August is the carnival which is a must see with many events from the procession, barn dancing and yard of ale contests and much more.

It has been said that dinosaur foorprints and other prehistoric mammel remains have been discovered in the rock's. Swanage is great for fossile hunters, althrough I don't know what would of happened if some of them had still been alive roaming the Purbecks; David Attenborough would have a field day,

There's a lot more to do in swanage then meets the eye. services in Swanage are good, there's the usuel Banks like Lloyds & Natwest. There's also a post office and chemists. Along the seafront is a playpark, and the TIC. market days is Tuedays.

"Shopping in Swanage"

Retail in Swanage is good, depending on business shops will stay open during the summer until 10am. It's worth exploring, and there are surprises to be found.

There are many places which sell windchimes, dreamcatchers & crystals. There's also a number of charity shops & a somerfield. There's also a bike hire place in the High Street over the road from the town hall.

"The pier and beyond"

The pier is Victorian built in 1896, has great views across towards Pool and Bournemouth and the Needles on the Isle of Wight. To get on the pier there’s a charge of 30p. You can take a boat to Poole, Bournemouth, the Isle of Wight or Brownsea Island, as well as cruises to Old Harry's Rocks & Durlston. You need to check the times, which are usually displayed on a blackboard.

Swanage also has a steam railway which I have decribed in my other reports.
