A perennial thorn in the side of Parliament, there's a fair bit of militarism on view link

Very nice pictures and summary. Indeed a beautiful view.

Nice part of the country.

Thanks both. The house is a real treasure trove of militaria for the 7YW.

I went to Newark after reading your review of the Civil War Museum.

Nice, thanks! I live nearby and can confirm the locals pronounce it 'beaver'.

My Daughter was married at Belvoir Castle – we live up the road in Bingham. The ceremony took place in the entrance hall, surrounded by the many military exhibits. The wedding reception was held in the main dining room. It was a fantastic day, finishing the kitchens for the dancing. (They didn't want to risk spillages in the main rooms!). The Master of Ceremonies was Harvey Proctor, a lovely guy, who was living at Belvior at the time as part of the team. He gave us all a full tour of the house as part of the day. As you can imagine, we have some wonderful memories. It is a beautiful place well worth visiting.

I used to go there quite often as a small boy. I think the regt museum of the 17th/21st Lancers was my favourite, especially the diorama of the Charge of the Light Brigade by the Perry twins made entirely from modified Airfix figures. Once the museum left it rather spoiled the overall experience. The last event I went to over 10 years ago was a Napoleonic living history display c/w 95th Rifles, British Line infantry and Foot Artillery, which was most impressive, especially the cannon firing. Shame I don't think they've had anything like that since

Arcane Steve that sounds like a good day of celebration. Years ago my sister had her wedding reception at the local stately home (at the time cared for by the council, and council employees could hire it for next to nothing). The meal was in the great hall. Very impressive. Now run by National Trust and you can't breathe out of turn in there.
