Hotels in Oakham

Oakham is the county town of Rutland, the UK's smallest county, located in the East Midlands of England. The town has a rich history and many interesting cultural attractions. Oakham hotels also offer an excellent base from which to explore more of the quirky county of Rutland.

Old Oakham

Oakham's illustrious past is reflected in its beautiful architecture. The town is also very green, with plenty of parks and open spaces, and provides the perfect setting for an afternoon stroll.

The tall spire of All Saints' Church can be seen from miles around and the church itself is no less an impressive sight. Built in the 14th century, it was restored in 1857 by the famous architect Sir George Gilbert Scott and is a Grade 1 listed building.

Oakham Castle and its horseshoes

Just a short walk away is the remains of Oakham Castle. Built by the Normans in 1180, all that remains is the Great Hall. Inside the hall hangs the evidence of a peculiar local custom.

It is traditional for members of royalty or aristocrats who pass through Oakham to pay a

forfeit in the form of a horseshoe. This peculiar custom is now reserved for ceremonial visits of royalty, when large engraved horseshoes are produced. Hundreds hang on the walls of the hall, including one made in 1470 to commemorate a visit by King Edward IV.

The castle stands in the luscious Cutts Close Park. The park has a bandstand, skateboard area, flowerbeds and a wonderful playground. If the sun is shining, this is the perfect place to spend the day with the kids and a picnic.

Food and drink

Unusually, for a place of its size, Oakham is blessed with several excellent and diverse restaurants. Nick's, in the middle of town, is a special treat. The kitchen has received numerous awards for its menu of modern English dishes made using locally sourced produce.

If you want something a bit less formal, The Golden Dragon is the pick of Oakham's Chinese restaurants and is a great place to sit down or grab a takeaway. The Whipper Inn, just down the road, is where to go for a Sunday roast. This traditional pub serves up great food in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

Another fantastic pub is the Odd House Tavern, a local favourite with a great selection of beers and wines.
