Ambassador for Visit Notts, Visit England, Visit Britain & 'Official Robin Hood' of the Sherwood Forest Trust. 
Trip Advisor No.1 Nottingham attraction since 2012.

The multi award winning Robin Hood Town Tour is the definitive way to learn all about the world famous legend and to find out the best that Nottingham has to offer. 

Follow a trail of historical facts to discover how simple ballads over 700 years old grew into one of the greatest stories ever told. This fun, theatrical exploration of the legend is told against the back drop of the city. As you visit places associated with Robin Hood, you will also see the town's key sites of interest and learn about its past, present and future. Robin will also point out the best places to eat, drink and make merry so you can make the most of your stay.

Marvel at the stunning architecture of the Lace Market. Stand where horrible history happened on the steps of the Old County Gaol and find tranquility in St Mary’s Churchyard. Descend into Saxon caves beneath the streets. Landmarks like the Council House, Old Market Square, the Theatre Royal and other, quirky surprises await you on this adventure around town. 

The tour ends at Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem – the oldest pub in England - where people are invited to stop a while, refresh themselves and quaff fine ales with Robin Hood.

Alternative Saturdays from March to October 2pm - 4.30pm.
