This is the only place in the world where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans, spread over a site of some 25 acres. A visit to the Swannery is considered one of the best things to do in Dorset.

The Swannery was established by Benedictine Monks who built a monastery at Abbotsbury during the 1040s.

So if your family is looking for unusual things to do on holiday in Dorset, come to the Swannery and see over 600 swans, or get lost in the giant maze (the largest willow maze in Dorset, opens May half term). Parking is free, and disabled parking is available directly in front of the entrance.

Light bites and hot drinks served in the Swannery Café, by the swinging nest children’s play area.
