Belvoir Castle


Today Jane and I took a trip to Belvoir Castle to explore the gardens. It is a well regarded site and free to us as RHS members (except for parking) but this was our first visit.

The name comes from the French for beautiful view (which it has) although locally the pronunciation is more like ‘beaver’ than anything our Gallic neighbours would recognise. It has beautiful grounds, too, and, being late in the season, it felt like we had them almost to ourselves. We’ll probably take another trip next spring and try the full walk of the perimeter as well as more of the garden coming to life rather than draped in autumn riches.
