Things to do
A visit to Sherwood is an experience that will bring magic to all – daily dog walkers, morning joggers, epic adventurers young and old, nature lovers and Robin Hood fans will all find plenty to do and to love.
Walks and Trails
Our walks and trails cover all fitness levels, interests and durations, from a short and sweet nature trail to a whole day amongst the giant ancient oaks.
Throughout the year we host informative, inspirational guided walks, led by experts. From bat walks to history and heritage trails, take your pick and book in advance!
There’s loads of stuff to do for families with children of all ages and interests, from bug hunts to wood crafts – and of course, one of our favourite pastimes – Robin Hood spotting! Just bring your spirit of adventure…
Robin Hood festival
Sherwood Forest plays host to the annual Robin Hood Festival each August for a week – join us for some magical live re-enactments, thrilling skirmishes and archery lessons!
Cycling at Sherwood
Another great way to take in this landscape, Sherwood has a variety of terrains for you to enjoy along our bridleways.
Ever wondered what we’re doing to manage and sustain the forest, and how we’re doing it? Our Have-A-Go sessions are led by experts and we’d love you to take part.
The Wild Challenge is the perfect excuse to get your hands dirty! The RSPB wants you to connect in brave new ways to the wonderful natural world we strive to support.
Sparkling Sherwood will return to the forest in winter 2019.
