ROBIN HOOD

The legend of Robin Hood has grown from origins as dark and mysterious as the woodland glades of Sherwood Forest that were once his home. Perhaps this historic forest is the best place to pick up the trail. Just minutes away from the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre are a number of ancient settlements with their own tales to tell. Below are some of the main Robin Hood attractions in the Nottingham area.
