Christmas is a magical time at Corfe Castle. Take in the festive atmosphere with our contemporary lanterns, braziers, beacons and lighting as you explore the castle grounds. The castle will be open until 7pm, weather permitting.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
You can also share your special memory or wish and place it on our wishing bridge. You can also enjoy a selection of warming festive treats by the log fire in our tea-room and browse the Christmas gifts in our shop. The Lord of Misrule will also be causing mischief in the castle at 4:30pm & 5:30pm on each evening of winter lights.

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:
|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|
