Swanage is a small seaside town at the beginning of the Jurassic Coast (Britain’s only natural World Heritage Site). It has a safe clean beach, with views of the Isle of Wight from several of the festival venues.
Though there is adequate accommodation in the town and surrounding villages (from picturesque camp sites to three star hotels), early booking is advised if you want to be near the centre of town. The Tourist Office will provide details of accommodation and the staff are happy to help out with problems (though they don’t do the actual booking). There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars to suit most tastes.
