The Castle stands proudly on an elevated site which makes it highly visible and a nationally renowned destination for events and filming. Belvoir is popular with visitors and contains many works of art, the highlights being the lavish staterooms, including the stunning ‘Elizabeth Saloon’ (named after the wife of the 5th Duke), the Regents Gallery and the Roman-inspired State Dining Room.
