Belvoir Castle is the ancestral home of the Dukes of Rutland and the family have lived there in an unbroken line for almost a thousand years. Its turrets and towers rise over the Vale of Belvoir like an illustration in a fairytale. Due to the Castle being home to the Rutland Family we are only open on selected days throughout the year (see our website for details). Belvoir has many rooms to view, with history interwoven into the very fabric of the building. Our Tea Room in the castle offers a selection of sandwiches, home-made cakes & scones. Wonderful themed gardens delight our visitors. We hold renowned annual festivals and events within the grounds and you can shop in delight at The Engine Yard retail centre, located opposite our car park. Belvoir Castle has something to delight all ages and a warm welcome awaits…

Grantham Canal

The Grantham Canal towpath offers visitors a delightful 33 mile meander through the Vale of Belvoir. Opening in 1797, the canal’s prime purpose was transporting coal; fuelling the burgeoning industry and domestic needs of Grantham. Following closure in 1936, the canal is now under restoration. Between April and October, narrowboat cruises of 2, 3 or 4 hours, exclusive to your party, can be taken from Woolsthorpe by Belvoir. Tea & coffee is served throughout your cruise, all inclusive – why not bring a picnic hamper to enjoy as you glide through the pastoral landscape. Pre-booking required. More details on our website.
