Corfe Castle

Welcome to 1000 years of history. Corfe Castle is one of the most dramatic ruined castles in England. The leaning towers and large blocks of fallen stone give the misleading impression that the castle was destroyed deliberately over 350 years ago during the English Civil War and the remains that we see today are the result of engineers and not the ravages of time.

Along with Sandsfoot Castle, opposite on the cliffs towards Weymouth, Portland was one of a chain of artillery forts built along the Channel coast to counter a feared invasion by France & Spain.

Poole Pottery

One-hundred and twenty-five years of pottery heritage together with fun and value for all the family make Poole Pottery Dorset's No. 1 attraction. Britain's best beaches, Poole's love of watersports and the Quayside's rich variety make Poole the perfect place to visit for the day. At the end of the tour you can wander around the shop whilst the kids either enjoy the incredibly popular Master Potter's Game Show or play in the Have-A-Go area.

The Blue Pool & Tea House

The Blue Pool at Furzebrook, between Wareham and Corfe Castle on Dorset's Isle of Purbeck, has attracted and enchanted visitors for over 60 years. It's fame as a beauty spot originally came from the curious fact that the hue of the water changes from minute to minute with every variation of sunshine, cloud and rain.

Knoll Gardens

Experience for yourself the beauty and serenity of these informal and essentially English Gardens. Planting the Gardens began thirty years ago with a collection of rhododendrons and Australian plants. 'Wimborne Botanic' as the garden was originally known, had a wide collection of trees and plants from around the world, and was featured on BBC TV's 'Gardeners World'.
