    hrs Estimate Duration

One of Britain’s most iconic castles and the charming little village of Corfe are the highlights of this half day tour. Enjoy a scenic drive through the delightful countryside of Dorset County to the village of Corfe. Nearly all periods of history are celebrated in and around the village, which is unequalled in the UK.


Visit the ruins of Corfe Castle - the structure has been an important stronghold since before the time of William the Conqueror and was a royal castle during the medieval period. The dramatic ruins stand on a natural hill guarding the principal route through the Purbeck hills where marble was once quarried. Discover 1,000 years of history as a royal palace and fortress. With fallen walls and secret places, there are tales of treachery and treason around every corner.


After visiting the castle you’ll have time at leisure to explore the lovely little village. You’ll find small shops and pubs around the square. Much of the present day village was built in the 1700's to a consistently high standard of craftsmanship and has been used as the backdrop for several historical films.
