See the sights of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast by boat, then hop on a heritage steam strain to explore the countryside between Swanage and Norden. The 5-hour experience starts with a cruise from Pool Quay, taking in sights of Brownsea Island, Sandbanks, and, of course, the UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast. Stop at the Victorian pier of Swanage for a walk along the beach to the railway, enjoy a hop-on hop-off ride by old-fashioned steam train, then cruise back to Poole.
Make your way to Poole Quay at 10:30am, and board the boat for your Jurassic Coast cruise. After passing through Poole Harbour, you’ll see the sights of Brownsea Island, the Blue Lagoon, and the swanky coastal enclave of Sandbanks.
Listen to commentary from the captain as you cruise along the shores of the Jurassic Coast, which was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in England. At the Victorian pier of Swanage Bay, you’ll step back onto dry land for a short walk along the beach to the Swanage station.
Hop on a heritage steam train, and travel along the railway between Swanage and Norden. Your ticket allows you to hop on and off at any of the five stops along the line.
At 4:45pm, you’ll reboard the boat at Swanage pier, then cruise back to the start point at Poole Quay. Your experience ends at 5:45pm.
