About Nottingham

Nottingham is famous as Robin Hood's hometown, where he romped through Sherwood Forest and slept beneath the Major Oak. While you can still enjoy attractions as old as the 800 sandstone caves from the Dark Ages, modern-day Nottingham is a thriving shopping area that offers cricket, bowling, and dozens of cultural attractions.

If Robin Hood's story entices you, step back in time to reimagine the experience. The city's Robin Hood Town tour dives into Nottingham's rich history and highlights the life of Robin Hood, including the city's landmarks associated with him. Then, channel your own inner Robin Hood with an archery class in Sherwood Forest, or simply explore the forest's cycle trails on a bike.

After you've worked up an appetite, head to one of the top restaurants in Nottingham: Josephine's Tea Room and Café, The Wollaton Pub and Kitchen, and Bill's Restaurant and Bar. Cosy Club, The Cod's Scallops, and The Alchemist are excellent options for some lively libations.
