Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle was crushed by Cromwell's men in 1646 and its impressive ruin is now a popular tourist attraction. The ruins we see today are actually an 11th century re-build of a wooden castle dating back to the 9th century.

The castle and village of Corfe are built largely from the local Purbeck stone, which is probably the best limestone available for building and polishing in England.

Corfe Castle, which has been described as "one of the most evocative ruined castles in England", is now owned by the National Trust. There is an extensive country estate to discover and explore and the Swanage Railway operates a steam train service to Corfe.
