A peek behind the curtain at The Crown
As Netflix's The Crown returns to screens this weekend for its final season, the JG Travel Group is lifting the curtain on one of the show's most iconic filming locations on a coach tour.
Guests will explore Belvoir Castle, greeted on arrival by the Duchess of Rutland, who still lives in the castle.
Belvoir Castle is home to the State Dining Room, Elizabeth Saloon and more filming locations from the royal blockbuster, and stood in for Windsor Castle in the first three seasons of the show.
The tour doesn't just follow the footsteps of the casts of The Crown, The Da Vinci Code, The Young Victoria and more, but also James I, Charles I, Queen Victoria and Elizabeth II: guaranteeing a royal romp for all that experience the castle's cobblestones.
Claire Dutton, trade sales manager at JG Travel Group, gave a royal review of the new itinerary: "This is a really topical new break for travel agents to promote. The Crown has a really strong following and fans of the show will love the chance to see some of iconic settings and rooms where events took place throughout the various series.
"We have secured exclusive access to the castle on this date, meaning the only guests allowed in will be on our coach breaks and what a thrill it will be to be greeted by a real-life Duchess!"
'The Crown at Belvoir & The Accidental Duchess Exclusive' departs on May 19th, 2024, with coach travel, one night's accommodation with breakfast and dinner, the exclusive visit and a copy of the Duchess' book or a bottle of Belvoir wine included.
