Oakham is found in the county of Rutland, an area that was voted as the ‘best rural place to live in Britain’ by the Daily Telegraph in 2015. With its array of green parks and fields, great shopping and restaurant scene, and beautiful historic architecture, it’s easy to see why this pretty traditional market town is the place to be.
In Oakham, you’ll find all the usual local amenities (supermarkets, banks, doctors and post office), as well as a mixture of high street and independent shops. There are plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from, to suit all budgets and occasions. The bi-weekly open-air market takes place every Wednesday and Saturday in the town square and is a popular attraction, whether you’re there to shop or simply browse around all the local delights.
