    If you’re looking for a place to spend a day or two (or a week or two!) which will keep everyone entertained, then look no further.

    There are four main car parks which are tailored to different experiences (all with toilet facilities & seasonal refreshment) and a daily car park ticket is valid at all 4 sites – Sykes Lane | Whitwell | Normanton | Barnsdale

    Rutland Water is the Playground of the East Midlands

    One of the largest man made lakes in Europe, and the largest in England (by surface area). Set in over 3,000 acres of beautiful rolling countryside there are plenty of activities found around and on the water for families, couples and individuals wishing to explore.

    Water Sports, Nature Reserves, Sporting Events, Cycling, Fishing & Walking Facilities

    Look out for the Rutland Belle, which you may spot taking visitors on tours across the water from April until the end of October.

    Perhaps one of the most iconic features of Rutland Water is Normanton Church which was saved from demolition back in 1970, when plans were outlined to flood the area to create the Rutland Water we have come to know and love today. The church now sits safely on a new level of rubble topped with concrete above water level, on its own peninsular. It is a spectacular sight to behold, and creates a picture perfect backdrop for your Rutland selfie.

    Come rain or shine Rutland Water offers a plethora of things to do, so why don’t you plan your next break or day out to one of England’s finest landmarks.
