I love Swanage and went there loads as a kid.
Not sure what the usual recommendations would be?
Cliff walk to Worth Matravers is good but I guess you already know that ... Nice little pub there which often has live music. Ale and pies and a tiny museum at the back.
Corfe castle. You can get a steam train from Swanage to Corfe (and back). It's fun and the people who run it are lovely.
Weymouth (prejudiced as my mum was from Weymouth). Lovely beach and harbour.
Lulworth Cove (but gets very crowded). Durdle Door, just a short walk from Lulworth Cove.
Will think of more in the morning
Swannery at Abbotsbury is wonderful but can't remember how near it is to Swanage.
Upwey Wishing Well ditto. Fantastic gardens and a lovely little tea room.
