Legendary home of Robin Hood and an awe inspiring nature reserve of ancient oak trees
Once part of a royal hunting forest, Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve covers 450 acres and incorporates some truly ancient areas of native woodland where slender birch trees grow alongside more than one thousand veteran oaks, most of which are over 500 years old.
The largest and most famous of these is the Major Oak - linked throughout the world to Sherwoods legendary hero Robin Hood.
At the entrance to the country park is Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre with an exhibition on Robyn Hodes Sherwode, two shops and the Forest Table Restaurant. A Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Nottinghamshires first National Nature Reserve (NNR), the forest is also home to a wide variety of flora and fauna that live on the dead wood and among the fallen leaves.
Truly a site of contrasts, Sherwood has something for everyone.
