Swanage Tips

Getting to Swanage from Poole by road takes a while as the A351 road goes around the Purbeck peninsula. A quick route is via the ferry, which operates from Sandbanks in Poole to Shell Beach at Studland, which is only 2 1/2 miles from Swanage. The ferry runs frequently throughout the day and evening and costs around 3.50 each way and cuts down journey time considerably. During easter and summer holidays, long queues are to be expected in both directions. - Denise
