National Trust to close Corfe Castle

Corfe Castle, the scene of many battles, is to close “until further notice” as a result of the UK Government’s coronavirus advice. The historic survivor of the English Civil War, which was partially demolished in 1646, will be closed to visitors from Saturday 21st March 2020.

In a statement on the castle’s Facebook page, the National Trust said:

“This includes the shop, tea-room, visitor reception and Castle View visitor centre. The car park and woodland trail will still be available to use, while observing social distancing measures.”
