Join the Lord of Misrule on a trip back to the 17th Century this Christmas at Corfe Castle. Follow the Twelve Days of Christmas family trail, make a yuletide wish, then relax by the fire pit with marshmallows and a warm drink.

Lord of Misrule Story Telling

Returning this year for daytime tours is Corfe Castle’s very own Lord of Misrule. Far back in the mists of history, at the darkest time of the year, the Lord of Misrule was chosen to oversee the fun and frivolity of the Christmas feast.

Take a step back to the 17th century, where our very own Lord of Misrule will take you on an interactive journey through the ruins of the castle and teach you the games, dances, stories and Christmas traditions of days gone by.

Dates:
4th and 5th December (weekend)
11th and 12th December (weekend)
18th to 23rd December (during the week and weekend)
27th 31st December (during the week and weekend)

Tours start at 10:30am, 11:30am, 1pm and 2pm.
