After a 3-year hiatus Corfe Castle will be opening its gates from 7:00 to experience the rare opportunity of watching the sun rise over East Hill on the shortest day of the year from the castle ruins.

Explore the ruins and keep cosy around a fire pit roasting marshmallows in the Outer Bailey.

Castle gates open at 7.00am in time for you to walk up and find the perfect spot to watch the sunrise. Bring a camping chair for added comfort.

National Trust members free, standard admission for adults is £11 which can be purchased on the gate.


This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.
Suitability: No unaccompanied children
Meeting point: Castle entrance
What to bring and wear: Dress warmly and appropriately for weather conditions. Wear sturdy footwear. Bring a camping chair for added comfort. You may need to bring a torch for the walk up.
Accessibility: Please be aware that there are steps, steep slopes, and uneven paths in the castle. There is wheelchair access to the Outer Bailey only.
