Kids Days Out In Swanage

swanageAbout Swanage - Swanage has a population of over 11,500 people and in the summer months this number nearly doubles. The town is located in between the Purbeck Hills and is on the east side of the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.The area has many things to do to  with the kids, from its award wining beaches to the beautiful countryside. Many people put Swanage on their days out itineraries. It ia a good base for school trips, with so much to explore and learn about. We also suggest places and activities for the disabled.

Shopping - there are a good selection of small privately owned shops and galleries, a great place to look round. This traditional seaside resort offers many interesting shops, attractive parks and gardens, tearooms offering Dorset cream teas, fish & chips and of course... there is the famous Punch and Judy Show! The nearby Beach Gardens offer a game of bowls, a round of putting, or a game of tennis in a tranquil setting. The informative Heritage Centre and three "heritage trails" enable visitors to uncover the fascinating features of "old Swanage".
