The Swanage Railway is an experience for the whole family to enjoy, suitable for all ages. You will start your journey at Norden and head to Corfe Castle, then it’s down to the Victoria seaside town of Swanage. It’s a five-and-a-half-mile journey that lets you explore some of the finest parts of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on a classic and historical vehicle of beauty.
The railway is located in the Isle of Purbeck, where you will board a full-size steam and diesel passenger train. There are stations at Corfe Castle and Harman’s Cross as well as a halt at Herston, on the outskirts of Swanage. At the stations you will be able disembark the train and explore, picnic tables are also available for you to enjoy the views and grab a bite to eat and drink.
Steam and Lights Train this Christmas
Journey through the Isle of Purbeck countryside. Not to be missed pre-booked steam train experience, the steam locomotive and carriages will be covered with brightly coloured lights while the cosy steam-heated carriage interiors will be festively decorated for the one-hour evening round trip passing the historic ruins of Corfe Castle. A memorable experience suitable for all ages. Stations and key points along the line will be specially lit as the Steam and Lights train passes through in the dark. On board the train, there will be festive music synchronised to the lighting displays passing the carriage windows as well as an informative on-train commentary.
Your ticket is for a return journey and also includes free entry to the Swanage Railway Museum.
