Elegant country mansion set in attractive formal gardens and extensive parkland
Explore Kingston Lacy, a lavish family home built to resemble an Italian Palace.
There's plenty to see, from grand, beautifully detailed carvings, to intimate family souvenirs and even strange curiosities such as an 'I owe you' note from a king.
An art lover's dream, take a look at rooms teeming with paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Titian and Brueghel. In the Egyptian Room you can discover the largest private collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK.
Then its a quick stop to visit the Hunting Castle of Lulworth. Burnt down in 1929 and lovingly restored.
We visit the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle stand on a natural hill guarding the principal route through the Purbeck Hills. It guards the gap between the south of Purbeck, where Purbeck marble was once quarried, and the rest of England. Nothing could pass in or out without going past the Castle. Learn about its royal history, treachery and murderous past!
