Great Big Green Week: Corfe Castle's Great Big Bug Hunt

What creepy crawlies will you discover nestled in the castle ruins?

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Great Big Green Week is here! This week we're getting involved with sharing the word about how we as a community can tackle climate change and protect nature.

Do you know what creatures like to call Corfe Castle home? Pick up a trail sheet and explore the ruins, finding six creatures along the way and learn their importance in our landscape.

Borrow a bug pot or pair of binoculars from the castle entrance and go on your own hunt... what will you find?
