Belvoir Castle Coronavirus Update

Mar 20, 2020 | Belvoir Blog

Message from Emma, Duchess of Rutland

As I write this email, we face unprecedented and challenging times due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the situation changing daily, we are all having to take steps in order to help limit the spread of the virus. Belvoir is no exception, and we have had to take some difficult decisions in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff.

We have therefore decided to close the Castle until further notice. Our Gardens remain open at weekends, with free admission for children.

I would like to reassure you that the decision to close the Castle has been taken in the best interest of all of our visitors, staff and tenants. We will be posting updates as soon as we have them on our website and social media, so please look out for these.

On behalf of everyone at Belvoir, I would like to thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Best wishes,

Emma Manners, Duchess of Rutland

Ticket Holders

Due to the recent closure of the Castle and Gardens we are offering a three-month extension to our annual pass ticket holders.

If you have purchased a ticket for the Castle, Gardens or afternoon tea we would like to remind you that the tickets are available to use on any day this season (until the 20th December).  We hope we will see you back when we are able to reopen.  If you are unable to use your ticket later in the year, we will be able to transfer this for you to the following season by offering you a credit note.

Should you wish to discuss the refund policy further, please get in touch with us on email:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and wish you and your families safety and good health during this time.
