A Day Out at Belvoir Castle

 Despite the inclement weather we continued with our plans to meet Malcolm and Maureen at Belvoir Castle  I had often seen the castle on our drives south on the A1 and it always looks spectacular and I knew the Vale of Belvoir from a long distance bike tour and from walking the Viking Way which passes close to the castle.

Meeting up at the appointed time having had to book in, we made our way up to the castle.  These are strange days: we had to wear face coverings throughout the visit and the cafe/restaurant is not currently open.  The castle, however is very interesting and we enjoyed our tour.

Although windy (gales!) and cold we explored the gardens and found them very attractive. In 2013 the original garden plans by Capabilty Brown came to light and during an extensive restoration these plans have now been brought to fruition.  We worth a return visit in better weather next spring, perhaps.
