Tours, Talks and Group visits

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 ring us or get in touch here. 

 

Tours

  • 45mins long (but we can adjust to suit your requirements)

  • Max group size 25, but bigger groups can be accommodated by splitting into two. The half not doing the tour can either enjoy the building and grounds on their own, or choose one of the other options listed below, before swapping over. 

  • Cost £2.50 per person. Minimum charge £20 for small groups of less than 8 people.  

  • Tours available any day of the week during our public opening hours. Last tour to start no later than 3pm. 

  • Pre-booking essential. 

Tea and Tour Packages

We've teamed up with a local cafe, who are situated on the outside of our walls to offer a guided tour and a cream tea package for £7.50 per person. We suggest either have the tour, then the tea, or if you need to split a larger group, half can enjoy the cream tea, while the other half have the tour, then swap. 

Medieval Food and Manners

This fun session looks at table manners (you get to have a go at the banqueting table), foods available, the spice trade and a "Guess What It Is" pottery quiz. 

  • 45mins long (but can be adjusted)

  • Max group size 30. 

  • Can be done as a stand alone activity or combined with a tour. 

  • Cost £2.50 per person. Minimum charge £20 for small groups of less than 8 people.  

  • Tours available any day of the week during our public opening hours. Last session to start no later than 3pm. 

  • Pre-booking essential. 

Talks

A member of our team can give a 45 min talk on the history of Oakham Castle to your group either at the Castle or at your usual meeting place (within a 30 mile radius of the Castle). You will need to provide a screen, but we can bring everything else £40. Please speak to us to arrange details.
