BELVOIR Castle is one of England’s most magnificent Regency houses, with its turrets rising above Leicestershire’s Vale of Belvoir like an illustration in a romantic fairytale. Featuring Capability Brown landscapes and exquisite interiors, its grand historic beauty appears in the popular Netflix series The Crown, doubling as Windsor Castle.
Army&You is excited to team up with Belvoir Castle to give away a family ticket – two adults and up to three children – including a family guided tour and entry to the gardens, normally priced £54.
Belvoir Castle recently launched its biggest season in a decade, opening up The Dooms underground tunnels and introducing characters from upstairs and downstairs to bring its 1,000-year history to life. Meet the fifth duchess, Elizabeth Manners, instrumental in rebuilding the castle after it was destroyed by fire in 1816, housekeeper Elizabeth Stanley and butler, Thomas Douglas going about their duties in the grand rooms.
In the shadow of Belvoir Castle is the Engine Yard, a retail village that’s been carefully restored from Victorian buildings. Championing local businesses and great British brands, you’ll be spoilt for choice with food, drink and shopping.
