Swanage and Purbeck Walking Festival 2014

The beautiful Isle of Purbeck in Dorset is a walker’s paradise. From coast to country, the variety is unsurpassed. To celebrate the beauty of this beautiful walking territory, the 2014 walking festival will take place between Saturday 20 September and Sunday 28 September.

Now in its fifth year, the festival includes 30 guided walks, each costing just £3.50 per person. This year there are three walks with a war theme (commemorating both World Wars in conjunction with the 2014 anniversary), a new family bug walk, quarrying, shipwrecks, smuggling, fossils, literature, art, photography and ghost stories. Really a walk for everyone. See the festival’s website for full details.



 If you’re not able to make the festival but want to explore the area in your own time there are plenty of similar routes on iFootpath to follow independently. Here are a few of our favourites:

The Lawrence of Arabia Trail

Follow in the footsteps of T.E. Lawrence taking in his former home and final resting place as well as the Bovington Tank Museum, where he was based in the Tank Corps.

Corfe Castle to Swanage

An 8 mile linear walk along the Purbeck Ridge from Corfe Castle to Swanage returning by train on the heritage steam railway.

Durdle Door and Swyre Head

A 4 mile circular walk from Lulworth Cove in Dorset taking in a beautiful stretch of the Jurassic Coast, including the famous Durdle Door, before returning through farmland. The views across the World Heritage Coast are breathtaking and you’ll be able to see the various chalk and limestone formations including coves, stacks and arches.
