 Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset

Home to the world’s only managed colony of nesting mute swans

Abbotsbury Swannery is the only place in the world where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans. A visit to this beautiful place is considered to be one of the best things to do in Dorset.


Exciting news! We have teamed up with Brambly Hedge to create a story trail for children and families.

Brambly Hedge is a collection of children’s stories and illustrations that follow the lives of a community of self-sufficient mice who live in Brambly Hedge.

Based on the Sea Story book, the trail includes stamp points, characters to meet and an activity booklet. The trail runs alongside our daily mass swan feeds, willow swan maze and pedal go-karts, and is open all season.
