The Saxons & Vikings Displays at Corfe Castle

Esther Tendai Burt

My name is Esther. I was born and raised in Zimbabwe. I came to the UK, London to be specific in the year 2000. In 2005, I graduated as a psychiatric nurse at South Bank University. I moved down to Southampton in 2006. I did Journalism in 2011 and founded my own publication called DIY Girl magazine. Fast forward, I am now a full-time travel blogger.

The Saxons & Vikings Displays at Corfe Castle

Went to see the Saxons and Vikings Displays.

The South Coast was hot this weekend and with a record of the hottest day in May since 1999, I had to do something. I was tempted to go down the beach but after realising it’s a Bank Holiday weekend, I, therefore, decided to leave the beach to tourist so that they can enjoy their visit without too much crowd. Instead, I went out for a drive to Corfe Castle for the Saxons and Vikings displays, just to hang around.

Guess what? I was wrong to assume it was going to be calmer there. The place was overcrowded with people who had visited the castle. I understand nearly a quarter of a million people visit the Corfe Castle every year.



If you remember I initially highlighted visiting the Corfe Castle in my previous blog My Love For Pottery . I was encouraged by the displays that were taking place. The Corfe Castle was founded in 1066. It was partially demolished in 1645 to leave the much valued and toured ruins.


The castle was built on a steep hill. The thought of going up made me think twice.




Eventually, there was me overjoyed by reaching the top and loving the sunshine.


Even if the day was hot, it was also breezy at the top. I had to be careful the wind didn’t blow my sunhat away.


There was the wind again, trying very hard to get rid of my hat.



Different tents had fascinating displays, taking us back in time. Various types of fire were used.


This made me think about throwing a BBQ at home.



After a while, I had to sit down and chill for a while…


The view from the top was awesome. I could see people still flocking in despite going late afternoon by now. The Saxons and the Vikings tents were nice to view from the top.


There was an isolated house. I just admired its location surrounded by just the fields and all greenery. It made me love the countryside even more.


Taking its name from the castle, the Corfe Castle village remains undiluted. It still maintains its medieval characteristics.


Comparing modern day lounges or dining areas to the one below just makes us realise how blessed we are today, compared to how people used to live in the olden days.

The differences in outfits, proves we are definitely living in the millenniums.

For the history lovers, there was a lot to learn about the relationship between the Saxons & the Vikings, and the devastating wars that once took place. The ruins that still bleed to this day and the legacies that lives forever is to be witnessed by many generations to come.

If you have never been to Corfe Castle before, I recommend a visit there. It’s a place that welcomes people of all ages to dog owners too. And finally, it was time for me to go back home. At least walking down the hill was not as bad as climbing up.
