For such a tiny county, you’ll be amazed at how much you can do in Rutland regardless of your age or ability.  From driving a steam train to petting a scorpion, from jumping off the UK’s tallest aqua obstacle to enjoying lazy picnics, there’s something for thrill seekers and those of us that want to take things at a more leisurely pace.

For tiny tots, teenagers, couples and retirees, take your pick of daily activities, that won’t break the bank, and we’ll leave you pleasantly surprised at the benefits of a holiday in our stunning Rutland countryside.  Start creating your Rutland holiday ‘Things To Do’ itinerary list today:
