    Steam train to Corfe Castle

    by tango_jd Written Aug 7, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a steam railway ride to Corfe from Swanage station.
    in Summer 2012, an adult single was about 10.50GBP and a return about 16GBP - Children 7GBP and 11GBP respectively.
    However, many people take the train there and get the bus back.
    There are also "special occasions" - see the Swanage railway web site for details.

    Unique Suggestions: Book train tickets early on line for busy times (allow time for postage)

    Deck chair hell

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's lovely basking along the Swanage seafront, seagulls calling, children laughing; then the deck chair attendent comes up and declares it's £1.50 to sit for four hours!

    Cheaper to bring one of them fold up chairs I think.

    Unique Suggestions: Make sure you got £1.50 (daylight robbery)

    Fun Alternatives: Bring a fold-up chair, or simply use you bum.

    Beach at Swanage

    by tango_jd Written Jul 11, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fabulous beach but can be a little crowded in parts and at peak holiday times.

    Unique Suggestions: Go towards Eastern end away from town centre - the sand is better and the crowds thin-out a lot by then!
