The quaint towns of Oakham and Uppingham offer a range of individual boutiques, and antiques and galleries for the most discerning visitors. Meanwhile, the county town of Oakham offers a great mix of quality high street and independent shops – not to mention beautiful historic architectural buildings and a castle.
