Why Oakham: Things To Do?
Oakham is a pretty, traditional English market town, bustling with activity. Packed with heritage, there’s plenty to see in Oakham which makes it ideal for a day trip or short break in the UK. Rutland County Museum is a great place to start your visit – get to know the fascinating history of the county and explore the exciting archaeology discoveries. The museum is a treasure trove of glittering exhibitions including displays covering rural life & country trades, artefacts from the 6th century, discovered during archaeologist’s ‘digs’ in a variety of locations within Rutland, and unusual Crime and Punishment exhibits including the only surviving New Drop Gallows in England!
Step back in time with a visit to Oakham Castle, by the Market Place, Britain’s finest example of Norman architecture and recently restored thanks to a £2.2 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Find out why Royalty and Nobility have been bringing horseshoes to hang on the castle walls for centuries. Oakham Castle is free to enter and open to the public 6 days a week with a varied program of activities for visitors as well as providing a stunning and unique 12th century wedding venue.
The architecture of the renowned Oakham School dates back to 1584 and is a major landmark in the town. Its motto is ‘Et quasi cursores vitai lampada tradunt’ (And, like runners, they pass on the torch of life). Leicestershire County Cricket Club occasionally play games on the school grounds.
Wander through the Market Place on a Wednesday or Saturday to find a burgeoning display of the finest local produce from meats and pies, to local cheeses, artisan bread and fresh free-range eggs. Look out for the unusual stocks and the town pump beneath the Butter Cross. Every 3rd Saturday of the month you can experience the traditional Farmers’ Market in Gaol Street, Oakham. A host of quality produce direct from local farmers assures the highest standards and less food miles for the consumer’s conscience.
Railway enthusiasts can admire Oakham Signal Box, built in 1899. It became famous after it was used by Airfix, and subsequently Dapol, as the template for all their model railway signal boxes. It is one of a number of signal boxes in England that are on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest and it is in daily use to this day.
Oakham has an exciting and mouth-watering choice of menus to sample at an abundant mix of Cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs to suit every budget. With so many local attractions to explore and plenty of stylish shops and boutiques to visit, you’ll be grateful of the opportunity to sample the locally brewed ale and gather family and friends to experience delicious meals in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
