  • Not really a castle, but excellent visit. No cost except voluntarily. Fun & difficult treasure hunt for kids. Other things for kids also. Informative.
  • Well worth a visit, not for a long time though, allow half an hour really. Lovingly restored and enthusiastically presented by the very friendly guides, a free attraction with a tiny gift shop area.
  • Recently decorated. Plain grounds. Many trees recently destroyed to reveal old perimiter wall. Not completed due to lack of funds
  • Nice historic place to visit if you have a spare half hour .. worth a look but don't make a special journey though
  • Well worth a visit if you are in Oakham. It's surprising to see such an old building that is so complete.
