Market Harborough, 6 miles
Historic Market Harborough is known for its beauty, wealth of good quality independent shops, indoor market and more than its fair share of nice places to eat and drink.
The centre of the town is dominated by the steeple of St. Dionysius Parish Church which rises directly from the street, as there is no church yard. It was constructed in grey stone in 1300 with the church itself a later building of about 1470. Next to the church stands the Old Grammar School, a small timber building dating from 1614.
Market Harborough Golf club accepts visiting players.
Uppingham is 7 miles away, Oakham 15 and Stamford 20. All well worth a visit and boasting lovely independent shops and boutiques.
Enjoy shopping amongst honey-coloured buildings in a distinctly charming English market town. A wealth of history and a host of excellent shops can be found in Rutland’s smaller market town of Uppingham - the town's weekly market is held on a Friday.
