This winter, step into The Wondrous Worlds of Roald Dahl and meet all of your favourite characters. Continue the adventure with their Enchanted Christmas Tree show, the Santa Train and their popular animal attractions!

Christmas Festivities at Corfe Castle
(Fire Pits rather than a Christmas lights trail)
Weekends in December 3+4, 10+11. School holidays in December 17-23 and 27-1 Jan
Take time to relax and enjoy a winter warmer in the seasonal setting of Corfe Castle. Gather around a fire pit with a hot chocolate or a mulled wine and toast marshmallows; or step inside one of the festive ‘igloos’ to catch up with friends and family and enjoy views over the 17th century village below. Natural decorations will be sprinkled around the castle, collected from across the Purbeck estate, and you can make a Christmas pledge for nature on the wishing bridge at the south west gate house.
