King's Coronation at Belvoir Castle

6th to 8th of May 2023

Celebrate the King’s Coronation in Style

Enjoy the Bank Holiday Weekend at our Regal Castle proclaimed in honour of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. 

Bring the whole family along for a celebratory weekend at Belvoir Castle, including a screening of the Coronation ceremony in the castle.

The regal Belvoir Castle on the edge of Lincolnshire near Grantham is the perfect backdrop for the occasion, complete with the best of British food, drink and entertainment. It will be a celebration to remember – complete with plenty of bunting, of course! Come along to a right royal celebration of King Charles III’s accession to the throne. There will be a screening of the coronation ceremony in the Guards Room.

Across the weekend we will be running a ‘Best Dressed’ competition so whether you fancy dressing to the nines or wearing a full Union Jack suit, you may be our winner! Also we will be looking for our ‘Best Dressed’ pup too, simply enter on the day by posting a photo of yourself outside the Castle with #BelvoirBestDressed – the winner will receive a Friends of Belvoir pass.
