10+ Fun Things to do at Rutland Water This Summer
1. Get on Your Bike!
2. Check Out Normanton Church
Saved from a watery grave when the valley was flooded to create Rutland Water, Normanton Church is a striking and beautiful landmark.
From its unique position on the water, Normanton Church almost looks like it’s floating.
The best part? You can even get married there!
Find out more about the church here.
3. Get Soaked at the Aqua Park
Rutland Water boasts one of the biggest Aqua Parks in the UK.
For a 50 minute session you can tackle all sorts of challenging obstacles, including THE BEAST!
If you reckon you can tame THE BEAST, learn more and book a trip for your family and friends on our Aqua Park Page.
4. Ride the Rutland Belle
Not only can you wander around the water, you can ride on it as well!
The Rutland Belle is a rustic pleasure cruiser seating 110 people. You’ll get to see the beauty of Rutland Water from a unique perspective.
Great for taking fantastic photos, as well as just relaxing and taking in the scenery.
You can even hire the Belle for events and have the whole boat to yourself and your guests
Find out more at the Rutland Belle page.
5. Catch a Big One!
6. Freak Out at Bugtopia
7. Go to the Beach!
That’s right, we have a sandy beach! I know it’s hard to believe, so there’s a picture to prove it.
No need to drive all the way to the sea, just pop down to Sykes Lane and get tanning! Alternatively, pack your swimsuit and go for a dip. There’s nothing quite like it to cool off on a blistering summer day.
8. Get a Hole in One
10. Check Out the Birds
Our Osprey Project started in 1996 with the aim of providing a base for ospreys to breed at the reserve.
These majestic birds are a fun challenge to try and spot, especially for kids!
If you’re into serious birdwatching, there are many interesting and varied species populating the reserve all year round.
So grab your binoculars and see how many you can spot!
11. Master the Elements
12. Be at One with Nature
Take a peaceful stroll around the park and admire the beautiful nature that surrounds you.
Or, volunteer for the day!
We’re always looking for eager hands to help us maintain the park. The best part is that you get free parking for the year, a free polo shirt and an invite to the Christmas party!
