Things to see and do in Swanage
This is the place to be if you want to live your life outdoors, spending as much time as possible exploring and enjoying the spectacular natural landscapes. From the town’s sandy beach to the 320-acre Durlston Country Park, Ballard Down and Peveril Point, you’ll also have Poole Harbour, Shell Bay and Knoll Beach close at hand.
There are man-made attractions in the area to check out, including a number of historic forts like Corfe Castle and Durlston Castle, as well as Swanage Museum and the town’s 19th-century pier. If you have children, then Santa-Fe Fun Park and Putlake Adventure Farm are good options for family days out.
There’ll be plenty of learning to be done between all this fun, and there are several good schools either in or close to the town centre for you to choose from. They include Swanage Primary, St Mark’s CofE and St George’s CofE, which are all primary schools graded as good by Ofsted.
The Swanage School on High Street is a leading secondary option also classed as good by the education board. If you’re looking for a local independent, then you can choose between Harrow House International College and Purbeck View School.
Swanage transport links
The Isle of Purbeck has a range of bus companies which serve the local area, with Swanage’s station being located on Kings Road. The town also has a train station close to the waterfront on Station Road, while you can take a chain ferry from the tip of Shell Bay over to Poole, saving more than 25 miles compared to driving.
If you do drive, the A351 is the main road out of Swanage and heads north west to Wareham, before joining up with the A35 which runs east towards Bournemouth.
The Swanage property scene
Property prices in Swanage are substantially higher than the UK average, and also significantly more than the average in Dorset. That’s thanks to its incredible location, as well as great properties such as the stunning 2 and 3 bedroom homes you can find along Northbrook Road, just steps from the beach.
With the chance to save thousands of pounds with offers such as our Part Exchange deal, where we could act as a guaranteed buyer for your existing home, getting your dream home by the seaside could be even closer than you think.
