This incredible estate comprises 16,000 acres, of which 1,654 acres are woodland and 2,000 acres permanent grassland. A variety of cattle and sheep graze all around and the views are absolutely breathtaking. The present castle is the fourth to have stood on the site since Norman times, completed in the early 19th century after previous buildings suffered complete or partial destruction during the Wars of the Roses, the Civil War and a major fire in 1816. Its rooms include the elegant Elizabeth Saloon, the majestic State Dining Room and impressive military antiquities in the Guard Room. The castle contains many notable works of art, outstanding collections of furniture, porcelain, silks and tapestries, plus sculptures that extend outside into the Rose and Statue Gardens. Whether you're a history buff, a lover of the British countryside or simply fancy a fascinating day out, we strongly recommend Belvoir Castle.
