Step Back in time at Belvoir Castle

Belvoir Castle has been the ancestral home of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland and their family since 1067. Crowning a hill in Leicestershire, its turrets and towers rise majestically over the vale of Belvoir and it is one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the world. The castle you see today was designed by James Wyatt and was built in the early 1880 for the 5th Duke and Duchess of Rutland. The castle now houses one of the UK’s finest collections of 18th and 19th century pictures, furniture, tapestry, porcelain and sculpture and you can easily spend a whole morning or afternoon admiring the sumptuous rooms which house them. It’s also fun to see how the less fortunate lived – the castle kitchens and bakery reveal the reality of life below stairs in the 1800s.

With exceptional views over the Vale of Belvoir, the gardens - which were carefully sculpted by the fifth duchess Elizabeth – are also a super way to pass a day, with Italianate features inspired by the Grand Tours of Europe the aristocracy would take during the period.

Inspirations

Belvoir Castle is part of the following Inspirations:

Live the dream - Ten Fairytale Castles to say I do in by Liz Coggins

"With its turrets, gothic towers and a grand staircase, that descends two floors making it perfect for a dramatic entrance, this venue ticks every box in the fairytale wedding stakes. Civil ceremonies take place in the ornate Ballroom whilst C of E ceremonies are held in the Duke’s private chapel. After a wedding breakfast in one of the staterooms go “below stairs” and dance the night away in the Old Kitchen or Old Servants Hall."
