Built in 1190 by Walchelin De Ferrers, Oakham Castle is believed to be the finest surviving example of domestic Norman Architecture in Europe.

In 2015 Rutland County Council was awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to refurbish and develop the site. The Curtain Wall has been cleared and preserved, the famous collection of horseshoes have been cleaned and new facilities and educational features have been installed.

Oakham Castle is now a venue for music, theatre and weddings as well as a thriving community hub, providing social and educational services to Rutland and the surrounding area.
