Getting around Rutland


Shorelink Bus

Shorelink is our local tourism bus that goes around rutland water from and visits Oakham - Barnsdale - Whitwell - Empingham - Lyndon - Uppingham - Oakham (via Normanton, Edith Weston, Preston, Gunthorpe & Egleton)

A friendly and easy to use service designed to make exploring rutland by bus easy.  Very useful if you want to leave the car at home or want to walk in different areas around the lake, without having to do the whole thing!
