It has long been a dream of mine to visit the castle that inspired one of my favourite series of all time. Enid Blyton’s Famous Five Adventures are often based around an enchanting castle by the name of Kirrin Castle, on Kirrin Island, just out in the bay near Kirrin Cottage (see the trend here??).
Corfe Castle is owned by the National Trust and is located in Wareham, Dorset. I took the train from Bournemouth to Wareham and the bus from there goes straight to Corfe Castle. I finished off the day trip with tea looking over the ruins at the Corfe Castle Tea Room.
Entrance to the castle costs 9 pounds without a National Trust Membership (approx. $15 CAD).
