DIRECTIONS TO VENUES

For town centre map see centre pages

Taxi fares in Swanage are very reasonable, so don’t be put off by distances if you’re on foot.

Starting from the pier, the first venues are the East Bar and Bar One (1 High St), then the White Horse (11), Ship Inn (23a), White Swan (31), Anchor Inn (30), *Tawny’s (52) and Red Lion (63). The Black Swan (159) is about 300 yards further with The Legion (150) another 200 yards on from that.

Opposite The Legion is Priests Way, which leads to Panorama Rd and Swanage Bay View Holiday Park about 400 yards away.

Back into town and in between the White Swan and the Red Lion is Mount Pleasant Lane, a footpath that leads to YHA Swanage in Cluny Crescent, about 500 yards away.

The Mowlem Theatre (not a participating venue this time) is where Station Road, Shore Road and Institute Road all converge.

From the Mowlem, go along Shore Road with the bay on your right to *Sea Breeze Restaurant (7 Shore Rd); keep on along the bay and at the Bull & Boat  (non-venue) bear left up the hill to the Crow’s Nest (11 Ulwell Rd). From the Crow’s Nest, cross over into Burlington Rd for the Grand Hotel.

Herston Caravan & Camp Site is in Washpond Lane and best accessible via the High Street over the road from the Royal Oak (non-venue) at 417 High St.

Corfe Castle Royal British Legion can be reached by road, bus or train. If travelling by train, check the times carefully in advance.

 

ACCESS - If you have any mobility or other problems or requirements, please check with the venues in advance.

MEMBERS - Non-members are welcome at both Corfe Castle and Swanage Royal British Legion Clubs, and at the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.

* WARNING - Sea Breeze and Tawny’s are restaurants, so please book in advance. The restaurants are primarily for people who have booked and are dining. Please respect their space. .

Please note that any advice about directions is purely subjective and Swanage Blues can not be held accountable. Always check for yourself to make sure.
