Corfe Castle

The Square Corfe Castle BH20 5EZ

One of England’s most memorable sites, your first view of Corfe Castle nearly always takes your breath away. The hilltop castle appears as if from a fairy tale – especially when the steam train of the Swanage Railway puffs past. Mostly dating back to the 13th century when King John stayed here, the castle was partly blown up in the English Civil War, and today you can wander around the ruined walls and turrets that give superb views over the surrounding countryside.
