Swanage is a coastal town located in the southeast of Dorest County, England. Swanage remains a popular tourist resort town, with yellow sandy beaches, typical British seaside amusements, and peaceful, green countryside in its surroundings.

Bed and breakfast (B&Bs) and guesthouse accommodation largely dominate the town and waterfront of Swanage, however there are still some budget options available for those travelers on a tighter budget. Budget options include Swanage hostels and camping holiday resorts. Swanage hostels (like many other buildings in Swanage) are usually located in Victorian-style buildings, with high ceilings, large windows, and a decorative interior. Hostels in Swanage provide all the usual hostel amenities, usually with the option of dorm or private rooms, with a shared or private bathroom.

There are a number of activities in and around Swanage, including some more relaxing and laid-back activities, such as enjoying some traditional homemade fudge or traditional fish and chips while walking along the waterfront, enjoying the sea breeze and coastal views, and perhaps sparing a few pennies at the many penny slot machines. For visitors looking for something more active, there are many country and coastal hiking and biking trails, varying from a few hours, to multi-day trails. Trail maps can be brought from most tourist shops in the Swanage town centre. Swanage hostel staff members are also more than happy to help plan trips, and offer advice for actives and trails found in the surrounding area. Some hostels in Swanage even have spare copies of trail maps, usually left by previous guests, which can be borrowed or purchased for a small price.
