The Swanage Railway, an award winning standard gauge preserved steam railway, offers one of the most intensively operated heritage steam and diesel timetable train service than virtually any other preserved railway. Steam and Diesel Galas, family fun events, plus regular evening and lunchtime "Wessex Belle" dining services and the recently launched "Afternoon Dorset cream Teas" complement themed events such as the highly popular "Santa Special" trains in the run up to Christmas.
Swanage Railway is a great day out in Purbeck. Whilst you travel down to Swanage, with its blue flag beach, Victorian pier, shops and restaurants you can appreciate the rich history of the area, abundant wildlife, fascinating geology and the influence the region had on authors such as Enid Blyton and Thomas Hardy
