Belvoir Castle


Created by: Ideal Insight

Belvoir Castle is a stunning example of English Gothic Revival architecture and is considered one of the finest examples of the style in the country. The castle was originally built in the 11th century as a Norman motte-and-bailey fortress, but was later rebuilt and expanded in the 19th century by the architect James Wyatt for the 5th Duke of Rutland.

In addition to its impressive architecture, Belvoir Castle is also known for its beautiful gardens and grounds, which include formal gardens, woodland walks, and a lake. The castle hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including concerts, outdoor theater productions, and vintage car rallies. It also has a tea room, gift shop, and art gallery on site.

Belvoir Castle has a rich history and has been home to the Manners family since the 16th century. The castle played a key role in the English Civil War, with the 4th Duke of Rutland supporting King Charles I and the castle being besieged by Parliamentarian forces. The Manners family has also been involved in horse racing for generations and the castle is home to a prestigious annual horse trial event.
