Robin Hood

Everyone has heard of Robin Hood, Nottinghamshire's most famous son and the world's favourite folk hero. His adventures have been retold down the generations, from medieval ballads to Hollywood blockbusters.
 
Forever associated with Nottingham and Sherwood Forest, there is no better place to learn more about the man and legend.

Your Robin Hood checklist...

  • Make sure you go on a Robin Hood Town Tour with Robin Hood himself! Join the extremely knowledgeable Ezekial Bone on an adventure of the city and discover how simple ballads over 700 years old grew into one of the greatest stories ever told.

  • Visit our Tourism Information Centre on Smithy Row in Nottingham and ask about all the Robin Hood attractions in the area. You can also download a map or a trail from our website which details many of the key sites associated with our legend.

  

  • Venture out into the county and explore Sherwood Forest, and see beautiful woodland, including Robin's world-famous hideaway, the Major Oak. Take a walk around the picturesque forest or go on an adrenalin-fuelled adventure at Sherwood Pines which boasts miles of off-road cycling and walking trails along with the Go Ape! treetop challenge.

  • Stop and have your photograph taken with the Robin Hood statue outside Nottingham Castle. Each year crowds of people strike a pose next to our iconic statue - and many people check in and post their pictures onto social networking sites such as Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter. If you visit Sherwood Forest make sure you go to St Mary's Church in Edwinstowe which is where Robin Hood and Maid Marian supposedly got married.

  • Step back in time and go to an event organised by Nottingham Medieval Banquets. See characters such as Will Scarlett and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham brought to life as you tuck into a hearty meal and listen to live music from the minstrel.

   

  • Exploring Robin Hood country can leave you feeling a little peckish so make sure you drop in to Annie's Burger Shack in Nottingham. The restaurant serves a mouth-watering range of American style burgers including a Sherwood burger.
