In the county town of Rutland is Oakham; a picturesque and historical area that remains largely unspoilt and boasts a lively and exciting restaurant scene. With a population of roughly 10,000 people, the town is vibrant but still maintains many beautiful historic features such as parts of Oakham castle and All Saint’s Church. One of the main attractions is the wall of horseshoes that adorns the wall in the main hall of the castle which was a result of royalty having to forfeit a horseshoe when they had to pass through the town.
With close proximity to larger cities such as Leicester and Nottingham as well as Peterborough and Melton Mowbray, Oakham benefits from panoramic views as well as being easily accessible from the A606 and A47. These transport connections make Oakham the perfect place to stretch your legs and recharge your batteries after a long day travelling or simply relax after taking a walk around the historic town or venturing out to explore Rutland Water.

Did you know? The council arms include the upside-down horseshoe as a motif as it is common belief in Rutland that doing so will keep the devil out of the town.
