Start your ‘50 things’ adventure

Two young girls on the grassy slopes of Corfe Castle

Adventures start as soon as you arrive at Corfe Castle.

The little bridge on the Wildlife Walk is just made for playing pooh sticks and you could even try building a dam.

Watch out for birds here and in the tea-room gardens where the sparrows are really friendly — higher up, you might see ravens and jackdaws.

When you get to the castle itself you’ll find a big hill just waiting to be rolled down and the grassy banks feel great under bare feet.

If you lie on your back in the outer bailey you’ll see the clouds whipping past the castle keep, and
if you’re feeling extra adventurous, try climbing West Hill.

It’s a bit steep but the views are fantastic!
