Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle is an impressive castle ruin that sits upon a hill with good views over the surrounding countryside. It was once a royal castle.

This is a National Trust managed castle, so free entry if you have a family membership.

We parked in the main castle car par. You then walk around the base of the cast to get to the old village, before entering the castle.

When we visited there was a medieval re-enactment, with some tents from Ye Olde times.

Unlike some other places there’s not a lot to do at the castle (as it is a ruin after all), but there’s quite a lot to explore.

So, if you are in the area, this is a good place to let the kids get some exercise.
