Swanage & Purbeck ~ Dorset UK ~ The Euro Friendly Isle...

Now there is another great reason for our European Neighbours to visit the stunning and beautiful Swanage & Isle of Purbeck coastline..Nestling at the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline many will be familiar with Swanage for school trips or the occasional day out, whilst visiting neighbouring Poole and Bournemouth.

Renowned for its safe sandy beaches and working steam railway, Swanage is a delightful hideaway only 2 ½ hours from London. However a revolution is brewing as this beautiful area of Dorset embraces and welcomes the increased number of overseas visitors, attracted to the UK by favourable exchange rates and value for money...

Many local businesses in the area now accept Euros (and indeed US Dollars) in payment for goods and services, minimising any inconvenience of currency exchange for our most welcome visitors.

The Swanage & Purbeck Hospitality Association ( is fully behind the initiative backed by support from the Local Chamber of Trade as well as The Licensed Victuallers Association, to adopt a Euro Friendly approach.

Julian Maughan Vice Chair of the Swanage & Purbeck hospitality association says:

"By adopting an approach of minimum fuss for our Overseas Visitors we hope that their visit will be even more pleasurable.if that were possible. the local Trade & Chamber of Commerce along with the Licensed Victuallers Association welcomes the initiative and is confident that members will embrace the approach. Goods and Services can be paid for at the point of sale in Euros at the appropriate daily exchange rate, and it is envisioned that Members offering the scheme will display stickers to that effect very soon".
