Holidays in Wareham.
Wareham is the ideal base for a memorable family holiday in Purbeck. Whether you love walking and cycling, enjoy birdwatching, fishing or boating, Wareham, has it all nearby with self-catering cottages, B&Bs and hotels offer excellent accommodation in the town.
Take the ferry from the Quay down the River Frome to Poole and Brownsea Island, or jump on the no.40 bus for a day on the beach at Swanage. Catch a film at the wonderfully restored REX cinema, or enjoy a quiet pint and a bite to eat on the balcony of the Granary, watching the boats go by. Do not miss the amazing 'Chipperies' traditional fish & chip shop on South Street - the best we've ever tried by far - 'Frying Tonight' ! More background on Wareham here.
