“Awful, awful, awful”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We went to Swanage on the Swanage steam train. That was the highlight because the town itself is filthy and covered in litter. We had a very quick walk around and then practically ran back to the train station. Don't subject yourself to this shockingly awful place!

“Stunning”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Standing On Peveril Point and taking in the whole vista of Swanage Bay on a sunny day and you cannot deny the panoramic view is stunning and absolutely beautiful. A perfect English holiday resort. I was very surprised and gratified to see that at the end of the day the beaches and the prom were totally devoid of litter, a tribute to the holiday makers who visit Swanage.

“A cycle through the town”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We parked on the very edge of Swanage and cycled through the town and up the beach front. There is all the usual seaside activities and was not really a great place to be excited about. Have found much better beaches with lovely places further a field.

“Step Back in Time”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

First time to Swanage and will definitely return, very quaint town with very imposing castle ruins overlooking it which you can walk up and view. There is also a model village of the castle and town which is definitely worth going to see. Lovely place to visit just loved it.

“"A Jewell On The Jurassic Coast"”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Living on Bournemouth for all of my life. Swanage still holds charm & magic. From the Punch & Judy man on the beach to the takeaway fish & chips shops.
But best if all is the beautiful magnificent view out to sea from the beach & hills from Swanage.
