Tours, Talks & group visits

Oakham Castle Great Hall and Grounds are ideal for group visits. 

Group Visits

Guided tour                           £2.50 per person. Leader and coach driver free

Teas/ coffees and biscuits    £1.50 per person. Leader and coach driver free

Tours normally last about an hour. We provide adult, family and children tours. We can fine-tune the content to include information specifically to your group's background. The tours are generally indoors with some small outdoors elements in the grounds, weather permitting.

Guided tours of Oakham Castle can be booked for group visits, as can talks about the Castle's history and object handling sessions. To book any of these activities, please use the groups booking form or the Talks at your venue booking form
