Situated on the long line which connects Weymouth to London, Sway train station in Hampshire offers an exciting range of destinations from Dorset coast to capital city. Dating from 1888, this station's South Western Railway trains offer hourly departures heading west towards Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth and east to Southampton and London Waterloo. Sway train station is located in a village of the same name which is home to the prominent Grade II listed 66 metre structure known as Sway Tower – the world's highest non-reinforced concrete structure. Shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels can all be found in the village which also offers instant access to the New Forest.

Beach lover's can find themselves in Bournemouth in just 21 minutes. Every inch the traditional seaside resort, visitors can shop with a difference in one of its Victorian arcades, dine on locally sourced oysters or stroll the 2 miles of its beautiful gardens.
