Swanage Railway

If you are visiting Corfe Castle then the Swanage Steam Railway is definately the best way to arrive at Corfe Village. The six miles of track between Swanage and Norden pass through the spectacular Isle of Purbeck countryside with dramatic views of Corfe Castle.

Like many revived railways in the UK the Swanage Railway is no exception and relies on volunteers for its day to day running and restoration. The railway is currently working towards restoring the rail link from Wareham and providing a daily service to connect with main line trains.


Great care has been taken to keep the railway station preserved and looking as it would have looked in the days of steam. Baggage stacked outside on the main platform really do add to the authentic look and feel of this station. Definately worth a visit.
