Swanage - - 6609
Swanage is a town in the county of Dorset on the southern coast of England, located 25 miles east of Dorchester at the eastern end of Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site.

The town began as a quarry and fishing town in the 1st Century AD, during Roman occupation. It is first mentioned in history in 877, and reached its peak in the Victorian Era, when it became a fashionable and luxurious seaside resort town that continued to grow wealthy off quarrying.

Today, Swanage is known for its beautiful coastline and beaches, history, maritime activities, and hotels.
