We were already in Oakham so paid a visit to the castle, no, it’s not a castle now as so many people pointed out, but it WAS a castle and you can clearly see how it would have been a castle.

Very interesting place to visit whilst in the Oakham, Rutland area. Plenty of people to talk to about the castle whilst you are there. They hold weddings and other events during the year. The Food and Drink Festival is excellent.
We speny an unexpectedly enjoyable hour here, with an excellent, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable local guide, learning about the history and traditions of this well-preserved place, with some small but fascinating details and accounts that only a learned local might provide. Recommended!

Hi there sorry for the delay responding. The closest hotels off the top of my head are as follows...The whipper-Inn is just on the market place 2 minutes walk from the castle and the Mill Street Bar and Kitchen on Mill Street is about 4 minutes walk. The Admiral Hornblower is about 6 minutes walk as is Wisteria. There are more but these are probably closest. Hope that helps
