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?). The Tour takes around 2 hours and we cover about 2 miles in gentle walking.
