Description:

Visit the legendary home of Robin Hood at Sherwood Forest Country Park...

Visit the legendary home of Robin Hood at Sherwood Forest Country Park which is a 450 acre site within the wider Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve. The visitor centre includes a café, two shops, toilets and a short film show about the history of Sherwood Forest and the Nottinghamshire Dukeries, plus a small but interesting Robin Hood exhibition. Woodland walk to the Major Oak. Many of the oak trees here are veterans several hundreds of years old. Waymarked paths enable visitors to explore the native oak and birch woodland, interspersed by heathland and grassland. A car park charge of £3 applies every day through the main season (£5 during the Robin Hood Festival 1st - 8th August 2016)

The trees were okay, but wanted them to be orange as it was Autumn. Not good enough, please sort this out for next year. But all in all the place itself is nice, especially if you like green trees.

My husband and two children visited here 3/12/2016. Plenty of parking, tickets cost three pound with a refund in the cafe / visitors shop if you spend over 15 pounds. Well sign posted and taking on board people's different abilities be able to walk. Paths for wheelchairs and prams had a sturdier surface. Some very wet and muddy paths enabled... More

Such a lot to do and see here. Car park cost £3 for all day which was refundable in the visitor centre shop or cafe if you spent £25. We had a lovely walk through the forest to the major oak tree where Robin Hood is said to have hidden with his men. A short walk further on and you... More

Such a lovely place to walk around. A little bit touristy here and there but once you go past it all it's actually a magnificent sight. I probably could've walked around all day!

The displays are a bit touristy, but gave a good overview of the forest, and Robin Hood. The visitor's center is a nice stop, and the paths going through the forest are wide and well marked.

Another great Halloween walk at Sherwood Forest last night. Not quite as many spooks as last year but still excellent value for money and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Special thanks to the staff at the visitors cafe for their care and warmth towards our youngest and the balloons that were given to him was a kind gesture. Thanks

We stopped by on our way home from a stay in Nottingham. I'd been once before many years ago and the vistor centre etc was new. It was a glorious day and we had a wonderful time walking around the forest and telling the children about Robin and his men. I was a bit worried about footwear as we hadn't... More
