Local Transport


An exciting new Train project is also underway to link the Swanage Railway line and Wareham mainline station. Project Wareham hopes to reinstate the Swanage to Wareham 'Purbeck Line' which was closed in 1972.


Birchwood Tourist Park is 2 miles drive along the Bere Road to Wareham Train Station, which is on the South Western Train line from London Waterloo to Weymouth. Find up to date train information from National Rail Enquires and onward travel information.


Buses do not run past the campsite along the Bere Road.
The closest Bus stop is at Wareham Train Station or in Wareham town 
(3 miles along the Bere Road towards Wareham).
The Purbeck Breezer 40 route links Wareham with the coastal towns of Swanage and Poole, and stops at Corfe Castle and Wareham train Station.
The route links up to the ‘Open Top’ Breezer 50 route bus which travels from Swanage, through Studland across the Sandbanks ferry and onto Bournemouth.
Please check the Purbeck Breezer link for routes & prices and the More Bus website to ensure all information is up to date before travelling.
Other local bus services include:
  • the Route X43, a Summer only service between Swanage and Weymouth (calling at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door)
  • the X53 Jurassic Coaster bus which runs from Poole to Exeter along the coast through Wareham, Weymouth, Abbotsbury, West Bay and Lyme Regis.
Additional Dorset bus travel information can be found at Dorset for You
If you wish to explore Purbeck the local Discover Purbeck Information Centre has many leaflets and information to help you plan your day.
