Uppingham is also a picturesque market town, notable for its 16th-century houses, and where you will find great speciality and antique shops. At the central area of the county lies Rutland Water, one of Europe’s biggest man-made lakes in Europe, and a significant nature reserve, home to wildfowl during winter, to ospreys nesting, and a popular area for birdwatching, boating, walking and cycling. On the eastern shore of the lake, there is a headland with Normanton Church, a landmark building that survived a flooding, now a tourist attraction that you may visit, and a beautiful place for weddings by the water.
