  • Fabulous free museum in Oakham. Plenty of nostalgia- mainly local farming stuff, but plenty besides, and ideal when visiting Rutland Water but wanting to get out of the rain for a bit.  more »
  • It really shows the rural history of Rutland and just now also houses the library. Is there a better laid out county library? Very knowledgable and helpful people too.  more »
  • Lot of old agricultural equipment, tractors and other machinery. Old gallows too. Small cafe where food looked reasonable. Recommended  more »
