Advertise on the Virtual Swanage Website

Why advertise on Virtual Swanage?

The Virtual Swanage website is the longest running independently owned online tourism resource covering Swanage and the surrounding towns and villages in the Isle of Purbeck.

Since 1996 we have been promoting local businesses, events, local attractions and accommodation to visitors from all around the world. The website receives on average 350,000 visitors each year (2019) and these visitors view over one million pages on the website annually.

Unlike other Dorset tourism websites such as the council run Visit Dorset, we do not charge local businesses for our Directory Listings for Shops, Food and Drink establishments and the basic free accommodation listings.

Our paid fully featured accommodation listings only cost £40* per year which is much lower than other local tourism websites, some charging up to £900 per year for a similar style accommodation listing.

The Accommodation listings and Purbeck Directory listings have their own secure admin systems allowing you to update your information at any time and at no extra costs to you for any changes you make.
