Swanage Tourist Information Centre

As previously reported, the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) had been temporarily relocated to the Town Hall for the 2016-17 autumn/winter period whilst extensive refurbishment works were carried out to the TIC building in Shore Road.

The TIC's Visitor Services Team returned to a much improved TIC building with effect from Tuesday 11th April 2017, and full information/visitor services have now resumed in Shore Road.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, there had been a slight delay in moving back in, however, the Team are very much looking forward to welcoming you at the 'new' TIC, please feel free to drop in and have a look at their new surroundings.

The TIC Team can be followed on Facebook, contacted by telephone on 01929 422885, or via email to mail@swanage.gov.uk
