  • The Great Hall of the Castle is one of the finest examples of 12th century domestic architecture in England. Built between 1180 and 1190, it is thought to be the best preserved Norman Aisled Hall in Northern Europe.

    Following an exhaustive period of refurbishment, Oakham Castle was opened to the public in May 2016, and what a joy it is.

    The best known feature of the Great Hall is its unique collection of over 230 ornate horseshoes, each one donated by a peer of the realm (Royalty and nobility such as Dukes, Earls, Viscounts, Barons and Bishops, and including several members of the Royal Family).
