Duchess Days


Experience a day like no other, with a private tour and day spent with the Duchess of Rutland.

Friday 24th September

“I can talk about Belvoir all day long but there is nothing to compare with the spine-tingling magic of experiencing the place for yourself. So, I’ve decided to set up a number of ‘Duchess Days’ – when, if you join me, you will be my personal guest for a behind the scenes tour of just about all there is to see: the Castle’s State Rooms including the glorious Regent’s Gallery and Elizabeth Saloon (both inspired by Versailles), the Ballroom, the Old Kitchen and Armory and of course the magnificent gardens. Woven into all this, I can promise you a delicious lunch, during which we can talk about the nuts and bolts of living in England’s most romantic and most impractical castle.”
Her Grace, The Duchess of Rutland

The cost is £175.00 per person, with very limited tickets and we currently have two dates Friday 24th September, which includes one of the following:

9:30am – 5:30pm 

  • Join Her Grace for morning coffee on arrival.
