Corfe Castle in Dorset – an awe inspiring place to visit – the following excerpt is taken from the National Trust site – Visit http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk for more information.

‘Thousand-year-old royal castle shaped by warfare
Enjoy one of Britain’s most iconic and evocative survivors of the English Civil War, partially demolished in 1646 by the Parliamentarians.
A favourite haunt for adults and children alike, you can’t fail to be captivated by these romantic castle ruins with breathtaking views across Purbeck.
Discover 1,000 years of our history as a royal palace and fortress. With fallen walls and secret places, there are tales of treachery and treason around every corner.
Spot the ‘murder holes’ and count the arrow loops. Feel history come to life and see the wildlife that has set up home here.’

The town itself is also worth a visit with its quaint shops and cafes serving cream teas. You can’t possibly leave without sampling a cream tea!
