A new exhibition has opened at Durlston Castle.
It features photos and souvenirs collected by visitors to the country park and castle over the last 100 years.
The award winning venue is owned and managed by Dorset County Council.
Ali Tuckey, countryside ranger at Dorset County Council, said:
"During the last few months, people from Swanage and visitors from outside the area have come forward with some amazing documents, pictures and stories.
"It's been a treat to put them together into an exhibition tracing the story of this special place.
"From picnics at Tilly Whim in the 1920s, to top secret second world war radar research, weddings, a glass menagerie, rogue monkeys and the award-winning restoration of Durlston Castle, it's clear how much Durlston means to the people who have lived, worked and visited here."
The exhibition runs until he 9th of May.
