Swanage's Victorian pier is over 100 years old and is one of two built, although it is the only one that survives complete today.

It is situated on the eastern coast of the Isle of Purbeck, approximately 10 km south of Poole and 40 km east of Dorchester in the United Kingdom.

  • Good place to walk down beach line.
