We visited Belvoir Castle on Sunday. Paid our money, which was quite expensive.
We had visited before, a couple of years ago and enjoyed looking around, but now you can only get into the castle as part of a guided group. So for instance, first tour 11.15, next tour 1.15.
So if you get there at say 11, pay your money, walk upto the castle, which is quite a steep walk, and you get there after 11.15, you have to wait two hours for the next guided tour. There is not enough to keep you entertained for two hours!!
Last time we went there was also a restaurant, now it is only open on special open days, so any food, cakes, tea etc, is purchased and eaten in the wooden hut as you come in...could be lots better!!
We didn't hang round for another two hours, so didn't get good value for our money!!
It would have been nice for the staff in the wooden hut to explain to people that the guided tours were infrequent !!! However, it was up on the board outside, but who reads (and takes in) everything on a printed board outside. We will in future
The gardens could be really nice but need time and money spent on them to get them back to what they originally were when they were planted up.
