Welcome to Studland Beach

A four-mile stretch of unspoilt sandy beach, set in Purbeck’s natural coastline, Studland Beach is known for its warm bathing waters and excellent views of the Isle of White and Old Harry Rocks. The surrounding bay is a popular area for a number of water sports, and the rugged heathland inland is a haven to nature, providing a home to all six of the reptile species native to Britain.

Purbeck - Dorset’s tucked-away gem

A largely rural district in the south of Dorset, Purbeck is home to some of the south’s most well-known towns and historical landmarks, such as Swanage, Corfe Castle, and Lulworth Cove. One of the more notable landmarks is Poole Harbour, which ranks among the largest natural harbours in the world, and embraces Brownsea island, a wildlife haven which is a definite must-see for any first-time visitors in the area.

Ride back through time with Swanage Railway

The Swanage Railway operates a nostalgic train ride along the Purbeck Line, allowing you to climb aboard a genuine heritage steam or diesel engine and ride it through the bucolic countryside of Dorset. With easy access from Studland, Swanage, and other locations around Dorset, any first-time visitor to the area should certainly plan a trip to Swanage Railway.
