Ball Gown Heaven, one of the largest stockists of ball gowns, evening gowns, prom & graduation ball dresses in the UK, is situated in the centre of the pretty little market town of Uppingham, 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 can visit the other businesses in town, have or coffee or beer in several cafe's and bars or take the kids to the recreation ground, just over the road where there's an adventure playground if the young 'uns want some fun, instead of boring shopping!!

SAT NAV WARNING! Your GPS/Sat Nav may try to bring you into Hopes Yard - IGNORE IT!! Hopes Yard is a narrow cul de sac, so it's best to park in either of the pay and display car parks (Mercers Yard is right next to us and the Co-Op car park a few metres to the east of us). Both of these are free on Sundays or park on street for free on dotted yellow lines for two hours in most places.
N.B. Friday is market day, so spaces are a little less plentiful, particularly in the morning.
