Follow Author Enid Blyton to Corfe Castle

This entry is part 9 of 15 in the series Literary London & Enid Blyton's Dorset

My favorite childhood book series is Enid Blyton’s Famous Five mysteries. Ever since I learned that Enid Blyton’s inspiration for Kirrin Castle is actually Corfe Castle in Dorset, England, and in homage to the books, you can visit the real life Ginger Pop Shop in Corfe, I determined that one day I would go there.
