Please be aware that on the 2nd & 3rd July a large music festival will be taking place on the Belvoir Estate.
Although we hope that the event will not disturb our usual visitors in any way, there are a few things we would like to make you aware of before purchasing admissions tickets or traveling to the area:
Whilst the Castle & gardens remain open, access to some areas of the grounds will be prohibited over the two days due to the event. Visitors will still be able to enjoy the Formal Gardens in the proximity of the Castle however access beyond the Japanese Garden to areas of the wider estate will be strictly prohibited.
If you intend to visit on 2nd or 3rd July, please also be aware that music from the festival may be heard from the Castle & grounds, as well as surrounding villages.
High volumes of people will be traveling to attend the event, therefore please expect that some roads/ routes may be closed or diverted in order to direct traffic and avoid queueing. The Main Castle Car Park will be open as usual to Castle and Engine Yard visitors only.
