Winter Solstice at Corfe Castle

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.
