School Visits

At Belvoir Castle we aim to develop children's sense of identity through learning about the history of the Castle during Regency and Victorian times.

During school visits, children have the opportunity to appreciate the grandeur of the Castle under the supervision of a well informed guide. Most guides are in costume and their intention is for children to experience a day of fun and learning. In the old kitchen children learn about different methods of preparing and cooking food from Regency and Victorian times and see the housekeeper prepare potions and lotions for various purposes.

The extensive gardens and woodlands are perfect for outdoor activities and games.

We follow the learning objectives according to the National Curriculum and target several units from Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. It is advisable to book early as there is great demand for these visits and we like to offer each school a specially tailored tour.

Please note that school visits are only possible on days that the Castle is open to the public. For a full list of these days, please see the Visit Us page.
