The art gallery is easy to find – two minutes from the centre of Corfe on foot, and we have our own (limited) parking if you arrive by car.. Beware Google Maps which would take you past our entrance further up Sandy Hill Lane…
Boilerhouse Gallery, Sandy Hill Lane, Corfe Castle, Dorset BH20 5JF
Tel: 01929 481073
We have re-opened, post pandemic – with some trepidation, but still pleased see everyone… So far we will be open every Saturday from 11th July onwards, but will review the situation and extend our hours as we can. We are as always happy to open up at other times if possible – either by appointment, or if one of the artists that make up the Boilerhouse Gallery cooperative is on site (that isn’t everyone at Sandy Hill Studios). We hope to be able to run special events with pop up food and music again one of these days…. Keep in touch with our Facebook page for the latest updates!
If you are coming on the A351 from Wareham, take the second left (after the turning to Studland), just before the road climbs to the village square. Go under the railway bridge and turn immediately right along the track leading to the workshops and gallery and NOT further up Sandy Hill Lane as Google Maps would encourage you to do – look out for the signs…! We have limited parking at the gallery for customers.
By Public Transport
Visit us on the Steam Railway from Swanage or the number 40 bus from Swanage or Poole.
From Corfe village – it’s a short walk to the gallery. From the Square, take Station Road which starts by the corner shop next to the pedestrian crossing. Go along Station Road and through the station onto the platform – access is open through a side gate even when the station is shut. Cross over the footbridge and you can’t fail to see us. The gallery and workshops were once the milk depot attached to the station. It’s easier to come through the station than walk around the bottom of the castle – and you can avoid the busy traffic.
NB – Access to gallery involves a few steps.
