ABOUT UPPINGHAM

Rutland is the smallest county in England with 53 villages and just  two towns: Oakham and Uppingham. Uppingham is the smaller town , and many would argue that it is the prettier of the two. It's an ideal place to come to eat or to generally mooch about in the many independent shops & galleries.
