Heroes & Villains tour guide

See the hometown of Robin Hood like you’ve never seen it before!

Homicidal medieval Kings, the very first Vampyre, modern Olympians, evil murderers - and of course the outlaw Robin Hood. From Lady Chatterley’s Lover to Lord Byron, the history of Nottingham told through its colourful characters, presented by an expert story-teller – Dr. David Cross.

Short-listed twice for the Nottingham STARS Awards and chosen by Experience Nottinghamshire to host the ‘Robin Hood - The Movie’ global prize-winner tours of the city in 2010 and 2011, David’s tours are professional and enthralling.


David's knowledge and enthusiasm is exceptional, the pace of the tour is perfect and everyone really enjoyed it ..”

“Our guide was obviously very passionate about history & came across as very charismatic …”

“Had a fantastic time on today's tour. All of the stories were really engaging …”

“… friendly and has great presence …”
