Swanage is a coastal town in Dorset on the Jurassic Coast. It was once a Saxon port and fishing village and it has been a quarrying town since the 1st century. Swanage is referred to in the Domesday Book as “Swanwic”. The name “Swanage” derives from Old English meaning “farm where swans are reared”.
A popular visitor attraction is Old Harry Rocks - a series of chalk stacks that have eroded from the cliffs.
A granite column on the front commemorates King Alfred's naval Victory over the Danish fleet in the bay in AD 877. The facade of the town hall was designed by Wren in 1670.
Swanage is pleasant seaside resort in a beautiful position, with sandy beach, rugged cliffs, and good anchorage for yachts. The town is for the most part modern, but there are some old stone houses, notably near the mill pond, overlooked by the 13th century tower of the church.
