Swanage Railway

Award winning preserved steam railway.

What better than a leisurely trip behind an historic steam locomotive through an area of natural beauty. The 6 mile ride takes passengers through the beautiful Purbeck Countryside including stunning views of the ruins of Corfe Castle.
The stations at Norden, Corfe Castle, Harmans Cross, Herston and Swanage provide access to historic villages, country walks and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Events include Steam and Diesel Galas, family fun events such as Peppa Pig, plus regular evening and lunchtime "Wessex Belle" dining services and the recently launched "Afternoon Dorset cream Teas". These are complemented by themed events such as Wizard Week at Halloween and the ever popular "Santa Special" trains in the run up to christmas. One of the great steam railways.
