Travel Tips for Swanage

Durlston Head

by tango_jd

Lovely walk through Durlston Country Park to the cliff-top to see the "Globe" - an old Stone sphere created by local stonemasons and depicting an outline map of the world.
Path leads on to Anvil Point lighthouse and Tilly Whim caves.

The English Seaside at its best

by Ken-out-of-Bath

"Swanage Pier"

Swanage is one of my favourite seaside towns that reminds you of a time gone by.

Although the town has plenty to keep everybody occupied there are none of the usual seaside attractions that turns an old town into a funfair.

The beach is clean, safe and inviting. There are lots of good, reasonably priced, cafes, restaurants and lots of great pubs!

There is also a good selection of campsites around the town or comfortable guest houses for those who prefer to rough it in style.

"Something Old, Something New"

One of the features of this wonderful town is its pier. So when the old pier eventually rotted away the town decided to build a new one.

Not a "New" new pier but an exact replica of the old one.

In this photo you can see where the old pier used to be with the new one alongside.

"Pier Funding"

In order to help fund the new pier people could buy a brass plate that is then fastened to a plank of the pier's decking.

It is still possible to buy a plate today so that you can declare your love for your partner, dog or favourite beer!
