School Fieldtrip .... lovely clean beach. Lovely view. Great place to measure beach profiles, longshore drift and groynes! You also need a group of polite young ladies to make the day wonderful. Barry's boys made the day great!

Used to come to Swanage a lot when I was younger, is lovely to have come back after many years and see that it is as perfect as before. Love the quirky shops.

Beautiful views here. Several places to sit, eat or take a drink looking out over the bay. It all seemed very clean. Didn't get to explore much of the town so will need to visit again. Old fashioned amusement arcade on the shore, don't forget...More
