Oakham & Gates Garden Centre

Sunday 13th December 2020

At Gates Garden Centre it’s a fantastic time of year that everybody gets excited. Visit the winter grotto, where you can meet Santa and his Elves, see the live Christmas reindeer and really get into the spirit of Christmas. Stroll through a magical winter wonderland before visiting Santa in his Grotto, where all good girls and boys will be invited to meet the Elves and choose a special Christmas gift. The attractions are very popular with adults and children alike, so come along and join in the festive fun!

Please note that entrance to the grotto is not included and must be booked in advance via their website.

The historic market town of Oakham, probably took its name from a local Saxon lord named ‘Occa’. The town church dates from the 12th century and features some fine medieval carvings and unusual nave capitals. The history of Oakham is told in the Rutland County Museum, located just on the edge of town, on the road to Uppingham. On the eastern edge of the town is the largest man-made lake in Britain, Rutland Water, almost as large as Windermere, which we will be driving around on the return journey to bring the awe-inspiring vistas to you.
