Belton House

Belton House is beautiful!
You get fantastic value from Belton in that you are to view more rooms in this house than any other I have visited on the NT. The staff are so friendly and informative and extremely passionate about the house and the history behind it.
The café is reasonably priced and there is even a cart driven by a friendly guy called 'Robin' that will escort you from the car park to the house and pick you up on demand to take you where ever you wish to go. An invaluable service for someone with disabilities.

Wendy and I did the 'Downstairs Tour' which is free and runs 2/3 times a day. It takes you through the basement, the staffs quarters and we saw where they stored wine, beer and food, how it was loaded into the house and was given a brief history of what it would have been like to work at Belton House in days gone by. It was excellent!
We left Belton at around 5pm homeward bound and completely knackered!
