Rutland Railway Museum
Originally a site for extracting Iron ore, this railway museum will show you how ironwork affected living in Rutland in the times of the industrial revolution. Visitors will have a chance to look at a wide range of exhibits from coal wagons to classic locomotives. If you call in, you may even get an opportunity to take part in one of the museum’s “Driver for a fiver” days.
Rocks By Rail also offers team building days for groups of all sizes, where people can work alongside the museum’s volunteers to complete tasks. Other one-off events and goings-on can be found on their website.
You can also go on a nature trail, overlooking the Vale of Catmose and the old Oakham Canal. This walk is dog friendly and you can bring the whole family along with you.
