From its oaks to its outlaws, the forest has many tales to tell.
Whilst a simple walk beneath the trees makes for a fantastic day out, our team of guides are on hand for anyone wishing to seek Sherwood’s stories.
Go on a guided walk and open your eyes to the forest, learning to look closer and discover a rich, hidden world. Discover how you can read hundreds of years of history in the landscape, what kind of wildlife can be found at Sherwood and the stories of the trees themselves.
Ever wanted to know how to make a bow and arrow? How Robin Hood would have survived in Sherwood? Meet one of our costumed guides to help you delve into the story of the forest’s past and its legendary characters.
Our timetable of activities changes daily, so ask on arrival or check the boards at the visitor centre to see what’s going on. If it’s something you’re particularly interested in, make sure to ring ahead and check.
