Oakham is a stunning, small English market town located in the heart of Rutland. With its busy shops, friendly residents and amazing history, Oakham is worth a visit no matter what time of year.

Packed with history, your journey around Oakham can start from either the Rutland County Museum or the famous Oakham Castle, filled with some of the oldest horseshoes in the country.

With plenty of parking in the surrounding area, the Market Place is the heart of the town, with its many shops and easy access to the high street, you will find Oakham easy to navigate and the perfect place to spend an enjoyable day out.

Visiting on a Wednesday or Saturday gives you the perfect opportunity to attend our busy market, filled with stalls that have fascinating items on sale every week. If you fancy a break from exploring the town, Oakham is filled with many pubs and restaurants, perfect for a beautiful day out.
