The Village

Sway is a small yet vibrant village nestled on the southern edge of the New Forest national park and just four miles from the georgian town of Lymington and the solent coastline, its location making the village a haven for walkers, horse riders, cyclists and sailors. The village is best known for Sway Tower, also known as Peterson's Folly, a 200 ft tall tower built entirely out of concrete. Even today Sway Tower remains the tallest structure built out of non-reinforced concrete.

The village has a growing shopping centre that features a number of places to east and drink as well as stock up on the weekly shopping with an award winning butchers and a bustling village shop. And for those looking for a bit of culture the village is lucky to have an excellent contemporary arts centre in the form of ArtSway that plays host to a number of local and international exhibitions as well as educational workshops for all ages.
