The town grew around Belvoir Castle, which was built in early medieval Norman times. The name means "beautiful view."
Today, Belvoir is known almost exclusively as the location of the beautiful Belvoir Castle, part of which is open to the public, and another part of which is still lived in by the Manners family, and remains the seat of the Dukes of Rutland.
