Outdoor Photographic Exhibition

Outdoor photographic exhibition exploring reflections on 40 years of care and conservation at Corfe Castle.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In 1982 the Bankes estate was bequeathed to the National Trust in the will of H.J.R Bankes who passed on in 1981. This photographic exhibition will take visitors on a journey of discovery, looking back on the work that the National Trust has overseen in the 40 years Corfe Castle has been in its care. This exhibition will explore the scale and scope of work that has been achieved and a deep dive into the archaeology of the castle.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
