An evening in Swanage

If you’re after a pleasant evening stroll by the sea, Swanage is a great place to choose. Obviously, living near the coast there are plenty of places, but something about Swanage gives it a ‘holiday’ vibe, even if you’ve come straight from the office.

enjoy the harbour by hiring a kayak, pedalo or dinghy

Try taking a walk up the hill to get great views over the coastline, across to Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight.

the views from the surrounding hills are incredible

We all know there’s only one meal on the cards when at the seaside, good old fish and chips. There’s a perfect restaurant overlooking the harbour, you can eat in or take away.

there’s a beach to enjoy right in the centre of the town

For after dinner entertainment there’s several options. You can relax on the beach if it’s a nice evening or give the arcade a go, those 2p machines are always good fun! (just remember to¬†gamble responsibly)

Swanage also makes a great place for gift-buying, with some sweet little shops selling everything from holiday souveniers to super scrumptious chocolates (Chococo is incredible, with a shop and a cafe it’s heaven for chocolate lovers).
