Uppingham is the smallest town in Rutland and is a quintessentially English market town that has kept its old traditions and traders. The majority of shops are still family run and provide a high level of personal service, you can find these on High Street and Market Place – but there are lots of unique retailers hidden away along ancient alleyways.
Uppingham is renowned for its excellent range of antiques stores, fine art galleries and book shops, you can meander around town all day and rest your legs in one of the homely tea rooms. The town is a hive of activity on market day, which is Friday and the Farmers’ Market is the first Saturday of every month, locals and visitors come along to stock up on the seasonal necessities and fresh local fruits, vegetables, cheeses and meats.
