The product of over 20 years tour experience from the highly successful Nottingham Ghost Walk team, the Nottingham Heroes & Villains Tour is, to quote one of our guests, a ‘history tour for those that don’t ‘do’ history’. Touring Nottingham’s key sites of interest, you will hear fascinating and historically accurate tales of Nottingham’s past and present, including of course Nottingham's most famous character, ROBIN HOOD! (but is he ‘Hero’ or ‘Villain’ - or even real?).
Our stories cover the Nottingham Castle area, Brewhouse Yard and the Trip to Jerusalem, the medieval street plan, the old Market Square, the Lace Market, St Mary’s Church, the old Shire Hall and more! A cave visit is usually included in the tour (subject to availability). Robin Hood is associated with many locations in the City and his tales are woven around those of our other ‘Heroes and Villains’. We look at the historical fact behind the Robin Hood Hollywood fantasy and discover fascinating facts and Medieval myths.
Our costumed Guide leads the Tours with the flair and passion we have made our own on the Nottingham Ghost Walk. The Nottingham Heroes & Villains Tour takes around 2 hours and we (gently) walk about 2 miles (see also disabled access).
