About Abbotsbury Swannery

Set in one of the most beautiful unspoilt regions of England, Abbotsbury Swannery is home to sometimes up to 1000 beautiful swans. A sanctuary was set up here by monks of the local abbey and is believed to have been going since atleast 1393. There are things to do for all the family including an ugly duckling trail for children and a special Audio Visual show for all the family. Part of the history of the area resides at the swannery in the form of a Bouncing Bomb which was used against the dams across Europe during the second world war. http://www.abbotsbury-tourism.co.uk/email: info@abbotsbury-tourism.co.uk
