Belvoir Castle & Gardens (Grantham) – Sunday 11th July 2021 – Coach from Norwich

 

Following our popular visit in October 2020, join IC Travel on this fabulous day out to Belvoir Castle & Gardens.

 

 

Belvoir Castle’s history dates back to the eleventh century. It is the ancestral home of the Duke of Rutland, where the family have lived in an unbroken line for almost a thousand years.

Crowning a hill, the Castle’s turrets and towers rise over the Vale of Belvoir like an illustration in a romantic fairy-tale. The name Belvoir – meaning ‘beautiful view’ in French, and pronounced today as ‘beaver’ – dates back to Norman times.

 

 

Belvoir Gardens was designed and landscaped by Elizabeth Howard, 5th Duchess of Rutland, who was married to John Manners, the 5th Duke of Rutland. It was created in 1799, the year Belvoir Castle was built. There are many unusual features to the gardens, for example the natural amphitheatre which faces the estate was formed by the moraines of glaciers and a ‘root house’ or summer house which survives to this day. These natural amphitheatres are now embedded with fresh water springs to ensure blooming plants throughout the year.

Belvoir Gardens was also the first site of mass spring flower bedding, a concept developed by Mr. Divers, head gardener of the gardens at the time.

The once thriving gardens are now slowly being restored to its former glory. “Friends of Belvoir Gardens” is a programme which encourages enthusiasts with green fingers to volunteer to help manage this beautifully preserved garden.

 

Route via Taverham, Thickthorn, Wymondham & Attleborough.

Highclere Castle – Downton Abbey – Thursday 29th July 2021  

Find out more about the castle and your visit by clicking here.

Highclere Castle is not only a beautiful building, but a warm and welcoming home. Playing host to family and friends, but also to events and celebrations with visitors and guests from around the world.

We are delighted to welcome you to explore the history of the Castle, the illuminating Egyptian Exhibition narrating the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun, and the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding gardens and grounds.

Many of the rooms and vistas will be familiar to viewers of ‘Downton Abbey’ – both the Drawing Room and Dining Room forming the backdrop to the dryly withering put-downs delivered by Maggie Smith, as the Dowager Countess to some poor unfortunate relation. The distinctive gardens and park designed by Capability Brown, offer interest and enjoyment throughout the year and gratifying growth and change, as the seasons turn.
