Abbotsbury Swannery, Subtropical Gardens

& Childrens Farm


Cygnets Hatching Now

Anyone on holiday and wanting to enjoy the hatching of baby cygnets at the Abbotsbury Swannery near Weymouth now is the time. They are known to hatch any time from the middle of May to the end of June. The swannery is a great place for families to visit, and to be able to walk amongst the nesting colonies is a real treat. If you want to be present at feeding time I believe its daily at 12 noon and 4pm.

The Abbotsbury experience doesn’t stop at the swans there’s the subtropical gardens with formal and informal gardens, exotic gardens, and a nursery where you can purchase plants. If that’s not enough the children’s farm have lots to offer. Hands on activity with the animals such as goat feeding, goat racing etc. Also, the undercover play area is a big hit with everyone. To round things off enjoy some home cooking in the restaurant and browse the gift shop. The Children’s farm is 50% accessible to disabled persons.

You can either pay to go into each venue individually or you can purchase an Abbotsbury passport which allows you into all 3 attractions.
