A Curious About walk is a fun and social activity for all the family and friends. Different people can take on different roles - follow the map, identify picture clues, read directions, etc - it's ideal for children from the age of 6, and if you can walk/wheelchair it, you're young enough!
Oakham and Uppingham are charming market towns in Rutland, England's smallest county at 151 square miles. Rutland is the only county not to have a McDonald's (or Burger King or KFC!), and not to have any static speed cameras, but it does contain the UK's largest man-made lake. Its residents are known as Raddlemen. Oakham hosts the World Leg Wrestling Championships each year, and Stephen Fry attended Uppingham School, until he was expelled at the age of 15!
