Pick up Points & Times

Belvoir Castle
Coach leaves Northwich Memorial Hall at 9.00am
£22.00 - other pickup points (B) available

We visit Grantham for lunch with time to explore the town, including the Grantham Museum and the Angel & Royal Hotel, build in the 1200s.

We then visit Belvoir Castle, completed in the early 19th Century. It is the 4th castle to stand on the site since Norman times. From the elegance of the Elizabeth Saloon and the majesty of the State Dining Room to the delights of the Regents Gallery and the military splendour of the Guard Room, Belvoir possesses one of the most stunning interiors of the period. In contrast to the grandeur of the State Rooms, the Old Kitchen and Bakery fuel the imagination of 'below the stairs' life in 1825.

The Castle contains many notable pieces of art and includes paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Holbein and Poussin. It houses outstanding collections of furniture, porcelain, silks, tapestries, French furniture and Italian sculpture. The gardens have many overtures brought back from the Grand Tour of an Italian terraced garden.
