Come & join us on a hike to Corfe Castle – one of England’s most majestic ruins!
The first stone of Corfe Castle was laid more than 1,000 years ago and since then it has been at the centre of battles, plots and mysteries. It has been a treasury, military garrison, royal residence and family home. On this day hike, we will discover this iconic medieval skyscraper standing 21 meter tall, on the top of a 55-meter-high hill. Corfe Castle dominates the skyline of the Purbecks for miles around and the views are simply breathtaking.
Our route will follow the Purbeck Way, taking in England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Jurassic Coast. Throughout the walk, we will enjoy awe-inspiring panoramic views of the Purbeck Hills and the Dorset coast.
Distance: 11 miles (18 km).
Ascent: 200 metres.
This hike is suited for people with a medium level of fitness.

If you’d like to walk at a faster pace than the group, we recommend to download the Maps.me app on your phone. All maps in the app are offline, which means that you’ll be able to use them without an internet connection or in places with poor reception. The Maps.me app is free and is very easy to use. On the day, I will explain how to use the app and share the GPS route of the hike. For more details on how to download the app see here.
Traveling in small groups creates a friendly atmosphere. We aim to have no more than 16 walkers per group leader.
This tour, as well as any other Evebus Tours, can be arranged for private groups. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with email subject “Private tours”.
