Corfe Castle | National Trust

Thousand-year-old royal castle shaped by warfare.

The Castle
One of Britain’s most iconic and evocative survivors of the English Civil War, partially demolished in 1646 by the Parliamentarians.

A favourite haunt for adults and children alike, all ages are captivated by these romantic castle ruins with breathtaking views across Purbeck.

Discover 1,000 years of our history as a royal palace and fortress. With fallen walls and secret places, there are tales of treachery and treason around every corner.

Spot the ‘murder holes’ and count the arrow loops. Feel history come to life and see the wildlife that has set up home here.

The Shop
Our shop is open and offers something for everyone. Whether it’s environmentally-friendly swaps for a more sustainable life, a gift for a loved one or an indulgence for yourself, every purchase helps us look after Corfe Castle for everyone, forever.

The tea-rooms
The tea-rooms in the heart of Corfe Castle village have unique views of the castle from the garden and are famous for their indulgent cream teas.
