If you love history, you'll love visiting Christchurch Castle! With all the amazing sights to see in Dorset, it's easy to forget about places like this, but they're well worth visiting.
This castle ruin was once part of a much bigger Norman castle that would have once dominated the town of Christchurch. Plus, it's not far from the Norman House, which is a riverside chamber block - go and see it for its amazing chimney which is still standing!
Entry is completely free. It's worth noting that it's quite a steep climb up the hill if you want to explore the castle close-up.
