Services restart - Saturday 11th July

From Saturday, 11 July 2020, we will be running a heritage diesel service from Swanage to Norden and return. We hope to be able to offer Norden to Swanage and return service, as well as some steam hauled trains during August. We are following Government guidelines and have added a number of measures for the safety of our passengers and staff.

Summer services 2020

We're Good to Go!

The Swanage Railway is delighted to announce that our preparations for the Summer Service have met the new Visit Britain standard and we have been awarded the 'Good to Go' mark.

The 'We're Good To Go' industry standard and supporting mark means businesses can demonstrate that they are adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and checked that they have the required processes in place.

VisitEngland in partnership with the national tourist organisations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales launched a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for tourism as the sector works towards reopening.

We're Good to Go!
