Join in with the Trendy Tudors Trail situated around the ruins of. Corfe Castle.

There’s an opportunity to discover all things Tudor, from food to festivities, there’s even a chance to learn a Tudor jig.

Set in the year 1572, Sir Christopher Hatton, the first private owner of Corfe Castle, invites guests to join him for fun and festivities.
The trail is £2 per go – collect your Corfe Castle Tudor coin as your prize on completion of the trail.

The year is 1572 and the staff of Corfe Castle are preparing a feast for its new owner Sir Christopher Hatton, fashionable man about court and favourite of Queen Elizabeth I herself. Sir Christopher wants to impress his rich guests so Gabrielle the kitchen maid and Thomas the Master Carver are hard at work making sure everything is perfect.

Gabrielle is amazed by the oriental spices and strange new foods from the New World, newly arrived in England. Thomas is putting his skills to work making cutlery fit for a court favourite and his influential friends.

See displays of Tudor food and carvings and learn about table manners in the first Elizabethan age. Try the latest Tudor dance steps then explore the castle on the interactive family trail – find the hidden shields to claim your prize. You can meet the Trendy Tudors from Saturday 23 to Sunday 31 October with Tudor Table interactive experiences daily at 10.30am, 2pm and 3.30pm.
