How to find us


Ball Gown Heaven, one of the largest stockists of ball gowns, evening gowns, prom & graduation ball dresses around, is situated in the picturesque market town of Uppingham, in the East Midlands. That makes us half way between Leicester and Peterborough, Nottingham and Northampton, Stamford and Market Harborough, Kettering and Melton Mowbray, Grantham and Wellingborough, and we're just off the A47 within easy reach of the A1, M1 and A14.

With the pictures on this page we've tried to give you a taste of Uppingham's charm, so why not take your time, browse the local shops and galleries, have lunch and make a day of it?

While you’re choosing your dress the men folk are welcome to relax in our "creche for blokes", or they can visit the antiques centres, book shops, art galleries, tea room, coffee bars and pubs, or view all the goodies in the local Harley Davidson dealership.
