BELVOIR CASTLE 26 APRIL 2021

We are pleased to inform you that a visit and tour of Belvoir Castle has been arranged for Monday 26 April 2021.  If enough members want to go we can organise 2 coaches, one going from Doncaster and the second from Sheffield.  If not, one coach will be arranged with 2 pick up points.  Arriving in advance of the tour at 11 am, we will spend the full day here, leaving at approximately 4 pm.  The cost of the Guided Tour and access to the gardens is £16.20.  Details of the cost of the coach(es) will be determined when we know how many people would like to visit; however, it is hoped that this will cost members no more than £20 (in addition to the admission price). 


Belvoir Castle is a great place to visit, it dates back to the 11th Century, a guided tour of the Castle will be included and there are also gardens and lakes to explore with plenty of retail
therapy opportunities too in the Engine Yard Retail Park!  Local food, artisan shopping and the best of country living from the latest fashions and accessories to homewares, crafts and toys.  There is also a restaurant and tea room. 


Due to the nature of the property disabled access is unfortunately limited, the Castle ground floor is accessible, without ramps or slopes.  The entrance door is 80cm wide. Wheelchair users may access the Guard room, Portico, Castle kitchens, Pastry room, Gift shop and Tea rooms. There is no lift inside.
CLOSING DATE:  26 JANUARY 2021.
