Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck and Coronavirus COVID19

Update 1st August 2020

As the lockdown restrictions have been eased many of the local hospitality businesses and shops have re-opened.

Please be aware that not everything will be open and opening times may have changed, so please check before visiting Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck.

When visiting please park in the car parks provided and do not park on narrow roads blocking access for busses and the emergency services.

We ask visitors and locals to please respect our beautiful countryside and parks and please take all litter home or use bins provided.

When walking on local public rights of way please keep dogs on the lead and stick to the footpaths and bridleways keeping at least 2 meters apart from others who are no tin your household.

Do not use BBQs in woodland or heathland due to the extreme risk of fire and damage to the environment. The fire risk in Dorset is extremely high due to the hot weather. .

Follow the government guidance

Social distancing and hand washing are two key actions that can help to protect everyone and use a face covering when entering shops, cafes and other businesses.
