Tixover is a small village and civil parish in Rutland.

The parish church, St Luke's, near the River Welland, now stands about 3/4 mile from the village.

Tixover Grange, west of the A47 road, was home to the residential school named after Wilfred Pickles from 1955[3] to the 1980s. Tixover House is now a care home, run by Barchester Healthcare.[4]

Tixover Quarry is a popular off-road driving centre, which is used by Land Rover Owner Magazine for vehicle tests and photo shoots.
