There are two ways to get into Swanage and that depends on where you are travelling from.
If you have travelled from the West (Yeovil, Weymouth & Dorchester, Blandford, Wimborne) then you would travel via Wareham and Corfe Castle.
Directions: Follow the A351 to Swanage passing through Corfe Castle and Harmans Cross. Once into Swanage follow signs for the Seafront. When you reach the Clock-Tower on the Seafront turn left and keep going until you see the Crows Nest pub. At the Crows Nest turn left. At the end of Seaward Road turn right and you will see a big pay and display car park. Go into the car-park, bear left and you will see the ground straight in front of you.
If you have travelled from from the East (Christchurch, Bournemouth & Poole) then it will be far quicker to travel via Sandbanks and the chain ferry. Click here for ferry times and fares. It's worth checking the ferry operating schedule as every two years in November the ferry is taken out of service for overhaul.
Directions: Once off the ferry follow the road into Swanage going through Studland. After you have passed through Studland the road forks - take the left hand fork for Swanage. Follow the main road into Swanage until you get to the Crows Nest pub. Turn right onto Seaward Road and at the end, turn right and you will see a big pay and display car park.
