  • Great day out. Lovely period castle
  • Not the easiest place to find despite being a castle on a hill due to there being no brown tourist signs from the main road. Poorly designed website with information hard to find. Key details such as daily opening times and prices should be clearer. The garden only ticket seemed expensive. There were very few plants in bloom and no sign of gardeners. Access for those with restricted mobility or with children in pushchairs is severely limited. It should be made clearer at the main car park that you can park closer to the castle and gardens without the need for a steep climb.
  • No I did not hate the place I think that Belvoir Castle is wonderful
  • Lovely place, huge gardens, great for kids to run around or walk the dog
  • Well presented with fantastic views over local countryside. Expensive to get in but worth it if you like history.

Where to stay in Leicester

A B&B near Leicester Clock Tower is within walking distance of the main attractions. Charming architecture surrounds the clock tower square and makes a lovely backdrop to walking tours of the city. For a luxury hotel, consider staying in a renovated Victorian building on the outskirts of the city center.
