Summer at Corfe Castle

Children running through the ruins of Corfe Castle

There’s plenty to see and do at Corfe Castle this summer - from family activities and story trails, to walking routes, exhibitions, outdoor cinema and theatre performances.

Enjoy a fun-filled day out at Corfe Castle and explore one of Britain's most iconic and evocative survivors of the English Civil War. As you climb up through the romantic ruins, you can enjoy breath taking views across Purbeck and discover 1,000 years of Corfe Castle's history as a royal palace, fortress and family home. With fallen walls and secret places, there are tales of treachery and treason for you to uncover around every corner. There's a jam-packed programme of events and activities running throughout the summer too. Bring along a picnic to soak up the summer sun, or pop by our cafe in the village to cool off with ice creams and tuck into a delicious menu of tasty treats.
