Walk - Corfe Castle to Swanage
12.5 miles (20.1 km)
Corfe Castle Square BH20 5EZ Swanage Station
Challenging - The footpaths are across fields and along ancient rutted tracks as well as around the coast, and they may be muddy, so wear good shoes. There is also a lot of steep ascent and descent, including steps.
Walk to Swanage and take a train back to Corfe Castle. A challenging hike through a dramatic landscape rich in history, on paths and tracks that have been used by feet and wheels for many thousands of years. From the earliest days of life on earth, dinosaur footprints have been found here; while evidence of human habitation dates back to almost as far as the end of the last Ice Age. Travelling around the edges of a white landscape scarred from extensive quarrying, the route passes many fascinating features before it arrives in Swanage. Look out for dolphins and porpoises!
