Event Details

There’s so much to excite the senses at Belvoir Castle this Christmas. Come and marvel at our sumptuous Regency Christmas, set within one of the finest surviving examples of Regency architecture to be found anywhere in the world.

As you wander through the Castle, you will travel back in time through many colourful and dramatic, festive-styled state rooms, including the Guard Room, Ballroom, State Dining Room and King’s Rooms, all created by our award-winning interior designer, Charlotte Lloyd-Webber. There’s so much to see!

If you want to lengthen your stay, you can book a combined ticket to see both our Regency Christmas at the Castle and be enchanted by our Enlightened Belvoir Light Trail around the gardens where you’ll witness talking trees, interactive stepping stones, a wishing tree area and interactive games and lighting displays. This 1.3km trail takes about 75 minutes to complete. If you are visiting at the weekend, you can also book a slot to see Father Christmas in his Regency grotto too.
