Area details

Swanage

Originally a small fishing port, Swanage came to prominence in Victorian times when it became a holiday resort for the rich of the day. Today it has grown and tourism is a big part of the area helped by an amazing coastline featuring Old Harry Rocks and is considered the eastern gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. All of this can be enjoyed by many miles of the South West Coast Path.
