South West Coast Path : Branksome to Swanage or Corfe Castle walk

Lovely Coastal walk starting with a busy prom, then a short ferry crossing to start the South West Coast Path along Studland Bay (a sandy beach), past Old Harry (cliffs) to Swanage, a seaside resort. Optional ridge walk ending to Corfe Castle. Return by bus.

10 Day Forecast for Branksome

Page loading ...

Turning much colder by Friday and over the weekend.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be staying dry tonight with clear spells. The breeze will ease away and some mist and fog patches are possible later in the night. Minimum Temperature 4C.


Any mist or fog will clear in the morning to leave a dry day with plenty of warm sunshine. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Dry on Thursday with bright spells. Much colder but sunnier on Friday and Saturday and turning windy with heavy blustery showers, particularly around the coast. Hail and thunder possible.

Day 6 to 15

By Sunday a cold arctic airflow will be in place across the UK, bringing a good deal of sunshine and some heavy showers, mainly around eastern coastal areas. Hail and thunder is likely, with snow showers over higher ground in the north, and it will feel bitter in exposed areas. Confidence lowers by Monday, but it is most likely that many places will see a dry and bright day with showers continuing in the east, but widespread frost overnight. From Tuesday a spell of increasingly unsettled weather looks likely, with showers or longer spells of rain between brighter interludes. Gales or severe gales can be expected, but temperatures should begin to recover to around normal by Friday with milder, unsettled conditions likely to dominate until the end of the period.

Day 16 to 30

Mild but unsettled conditions are likely to be in place by the second week of November with dry and bright spells interspersed with bands of rain or showers. Confidence into and beyond the middle of November is low, but there are some signs of high pressure developing which could help to divert weather systems away from the UK. If such a scenario develops then longer settled spells could bring largely dry conditions, but a greater chance of overnight frost and fog, and daytime temperatures below normal. Any rain or showers could fall as snow over northern hills, and any milder interludes are likely to be short-lived.
