One of my favourite things is coastal towns, I love being near the sea and the great thing about the United Kingdom is that there are hundreds and today we are going to talk about one of them.

Swanage is located in the South East of Dorset and has a population of approximately 9,601. The town is on the Isle of Purbeck and is the eastern gateway to the Jurassic Coast. The beach is sandy and has been an annual Blue Flag Winne and is a great beach for families.

One thing that is very well known about the town is the Swanage Railway. The steam train runs between Wareham and Swanage. The train tickets range from £8 to £13 depending on which stations you go to and from. (Also please read online before you visit for any COVID regulations in place).

So why should you visit Swanage? Well, it is a coastal town with a rich history of being a fishing port which developed into a coastal resort with the introduction of the railway.

I have been to Swanage a couple of times and always liked how quaint it was. The beach is great and the town is full of boutique shops.
