Ezekial Bone Notts in a Nutshell | Visit Nottinghamshire


Please note these tours are by appointment only

Price: POA
Starts: To be arranged

Robin Hood is the perfect host! Join him for a quick, whistle-stop tour of the city centre and bear witness to Nottingham’s renaissance.

‘Nutshell’ is a one-stop-shop tour to discover hotspots like attractions, bars and pubs, restaurants and quirky places you otherwise might have missed. Benefitting from Robin’s 25 years of experience, you will be able to live like a local as you find out what #RobinHoodRecommends!

Shorter in route and duration, and with less historical content than the afternoon Robin Hood Town Tour, ‘Nutshell’ will help you orientate yourself around and give you an overview of the history and culture of Nottingham.

Light hearted and interactive, you will be invited to ask questions about things to do, so you can make the most of your time here and have an authentic experience of the historic, twenty-first century City of Nottingham.
