Filed under: England,Holidays,United Kingdom — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 2:10 pm

One of Dorset’s more popular seaside resorts, the town of Swanage has been attracting holidaymakers since Victorian times and became even more popular after the introduction of the railway by the London and South Western Railway Company in 1885. It has survived as a traditional English seaside resort mostly due to its unspoilt nature and the beauty of its surrounding coastline, being part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site of Dorset, which alone attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. Swanage today has a population of just over 10,000, and its economy revolves mostly around tourism, though it was previously significant for both fishing and quarrying, its being the prime location for many centuries for the production of Purbeck stone and Purbeck marble. As a holiday resort its attractions include its sandy beach, its excellent climate and its beautiful coast, with the renowned Old Harry Rocks located nearby, other attractions include Corfe Castle, Studland Bay, Lulworth Cove, Durlston Country Park, Durlston Bay, Peveril Point and the Swanage Lighthouse, it is a good base for touring many of Dorset’s other attractive towns and villages and beautiful unspoilt countryside. Swanage can be reached by way of the A351 and is about 7 miles from Poole.
