Ball Gown Heaven, one of the largest stockists of ball gowns, evening gowns, prom & graduation ball dresses in the UK, is situated just off the by-pass to the north of the picturesque market town of Oakham, Rutland, in the East Midlands. We're located conveniently between Leicester and Peterborough, Nottingham and Northampton, Stamford and Market Harborough, Kettering and Melton Mowbray, Grantham and Wellingborough, Bourne & Lutterworth and within easy reach of the A1, M1 and A14.

With the pictures on this page we've tried to give you a taste of the local area's charm, so why not take your time, browse the local shops and galleries, have lunch and make a day of it? The towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford make for very good shopping.

While you’re choosing your dress the men folk are welcome to relax in our "creche for blokes", or they can visit the other businesses on site - Rutland Garden Centre, Rutland Sheds, Pets Corner, Rutland Garden Classics or pop into the Potting Shed Cafe for coffee and a cake, or something more. In addition there's Barefoot Sunday, Rutland Interiors, Rutland Sewing, and there's an adventure playground if the young 'uns want some fun, instead of boring shopping!!
