Towns, Shopping & More

The Rutland Towns

Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford; all famous for their exceptional private schools, are also some of the most picturesque towns in England. The use of the warm coloured Rutland stone the buildings are built from, could be one reason so many people travel to these towns. But their hustle and bustle, artisan shops, markets, cafes, pubs and restaurants are also excellent reasons to visit

You will also be able to do some serious hunting for antiques and curiosities too, we have a few favourites, but we are sure you will find your own.
