Belvoir Castle

Historic House

Move Back in time Belvoir Castle Belvoir Castle has been the homeland of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland and their families since 1067. Crowning a hill in Leicestershire, its towers and turrets rise serenely over the Valley of Belvoir and is one of the best examples of regency design in the world. The castle you see today was designed by James Wyatt and was built in the early 1880s for the 5th Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

What is there to see and do at Belvoir Castle?

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.
