This pretty, traditional English market town is  always bustling with activity.  Packed with heritage, there’s plenty to see including the fascinating Rutland County Museum and historic Oakham Castle, conveniently set right next to the Market Place and Britain's finest surviving example of Norman architecture. 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 also has an exciting and mouthwatering choice of menus to sample at an abundant mix of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubsto suit every budget.  With so many local attractions to explore and plenty of stylish shops and boutiques to visit, don't miss out on the opportunity to sample Oakham's locally brewed ale!
