Abbotsbury Swannery, Dorset

New Barn Road, Abbotsbury, Nr Weymouth, Dorset DT3 4JG

Abbotsbury Swannery is unique. This is the only place in the world where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans. The swannery shelters behind the famous Chesil Beach on Dorset's Jurassic Coast and is a sanctuary for up to 1000 Mute Swans. From the end of May the public are allowed to wander around and view the friendly swans and cygnets at close range.
