Swanage Regatta and Carnival Week 2009 25th July - 01st August

I have family down in Swanage and growing up I couldn't wait to get down there for the carnival week, usually it's jam packed, but very much worth looking down there for a family day or weekend away, there will be loads going on, some of the events are chargeable but they are usually a couple of pound, most of the events are free and all donations go to chairty.

The beach and town are very clean, great quirky shops, awesome fish and chips and of course punch and judy on the beach. Absolutely stacks to visit in the local area, Old Harry Rocks, Sandbanks, Corfe Castle, The old Swanage Pier, Swanage Lighthouse, Swanage Railway.

A bit about the week:

Swanage Regatta and Carnival is the premier carnival on the South Coast.
Swanage Carnival 2008 Over 100 events take place during Swanage Carnival week, there is something for everyone:- live music every day, the half marathon, sand castle competitions, the sailing regatta, treasure hunts, magnificent firework displays and not forgetting one of the longest processions around.

Hope this helps someone who might be looking for something to do in a weeks time, I'm sure once you go you'll go back for years.

I also hear that the Red Arrows will be there again this year giving a display, they were previously cancelled but it looks like they are back on :thumbsup:

Are there any good rockpooling beaches around?

*sigh* I love Swanage but I've already been away this year-maybe I could convince hubby we need a few days on the south coast-voted hot!

Sharon you should definitely try and convince your husband, think of all the ice cream, entertainment, sun (hopefully) I hope you succeed ;-)

If it makes you feel any better Danny Boy, my reaction would have been the same for them too.

They are not deals, they may possibly be freebies, but really its just information.

Like I said - I love Swanage - I have many good memories from that place, and one involving a huge storm and helping some fit girls tie their caravan down before it flew down the hill.
