Dorset Wildlife Trust

Brownsea Island and Nature Reserve

Brownsea Island is famous for being the birthplace of the Scout and Girl Guiding movement. Set in the entrance to Poole Harbour, there are regular ferries across to
the island.

It’s home to thriving natural habitats - including woodland, heathland and a lagoon - create a haven for wildlife, such as the rare red squirrel and a wide variety of birds, including dunlin, kingfishers, common and sandwich terns and oystercatchers. Visitors will be fascinated by the island's rich history, for as well as boasting daffodil farming and pottery works, it was the birthplace of the Scouting and Guiding movement.

The Baden-Powell Outdoor Centre invites you to follow in the footsteps of Lord Baden-Powell and the very first Scouts who camped here in 1907. Brownsea Island is open daily.

Corfe Castle Logo

Corfe Castle

In the heart of Dorset, 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 is crumbling. The castle was destroyed deliberately 360 years ago during the English Civil War. The remains that we see today are the result of the work of Parliamentarian engineers and not the ravages of time. The Castle has been here for over 1000 years of turbulent history. Corfe Village is lovely to explore and Swanage is very close by, making Corfe Castle the part of a perfect day out in the Purbecks.
