Great day out. All ran really smoothly. Boat trip was fantastic, great views and was super to get off the other end and have a quick wander to the steam train. Which was ran excellently. Loved it. We got off at Corfe castle had an hour and half there and got the train back.

All the staff are friendly, the captain commentary was interesting, the boat and the train were on time. Swanage is very nice even if I preferred Castle Corfe village. Worth going.
