Wednesday 14th August 2019 – Belvoir Castle
Belvoir Castle has been the ancestral home of the Duke of Rutland’s family since 1067. It is one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the world.
The castle today was built in the early 1800s for the 5th Duke and is the fourth castle to stand on this site. It houses numerous paintings and treasures that have been collected by the family for nearly 1,000 years.
The gardens have undergone several changes over the centuries including bringing the lost plans of Capability Brown to fruition. There are also walks through formal gardens, woodland, Japanese, Duchess’s and Hermit’s gardens.
