Win big and live it up like an #Outlaw in Nottingham this Christmas!
Robin Hood – noble outlaw, altruistic rebel, man of the people…
Cheese riots, luddite frame breakers, rebel writers, civil-war-mongerers – Nottinghamshire has been home to outlaws since its early days. We’ll admit we are a bit softer nowadays, and you’re not likely to get caught in an uprising, but the spirit of rebellion still runs deep. We invite you to come and discover a city packed with riveting history, legendary sport, exhilarating outdoor attractions and curious caves.
BE ROBIN HOOD FOR THE DAY
Forget those dull days of work experience in a fusty office – become an outlaw for the day and shadow our very own Robin Hood. As Robin’s apprentices, you and a friend will explore the city through his eyes and learn what it takes to be a true people’s champion. You’ll also sample some of Nottinghamshire’s best food, drink and hotels along the way.
After a day of raucous doings, rest your weary head at Nottingham’s luxurious St James Hotel. Just a stone’s throw from Nottingham Castle – where legend has it that the final showdown between the Sheriff of Nottingham and our hero outlaw took place – this stylish boutique hotel offers an exquisite and relaxing atmosphere for all its guests.
Experience Trip Advisor’s number 1 tourist attraction in Nottingham; the multi award-winning Robin Hood Town Tour. Follow Robin Hood’s lead and discover fascinating historical facts and 700-year-old ballads, and see one of the greatest tales ever told come to life.
Once you’ve enjoyed a delicious lunch and gallivanted around our rip-roaring city, Robin Hood will guide you into Nottingham’s thriving Creative Quarter for a delectable welcome drink at the fantastically unusual Curious Tavern. Following that, you’ll head deep into one of the city’s 800 underground caves for a tour of Curious Tavern’s magical Lost Caves.
Indulge in a merry feast at the oldest inn in the UK, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem – a regular haunt for today’s Robin Hood. Built into the rocks that Nottingham Castle stands upon, the Trip serves hearty, home-cooked pub food favourites in a truly unique setting.
You’ll need the appetite of a true outlaw for your next meal as part of your stay in Nottingham: a meal for 2 at the award-winning Annie’s Burger Shack. Since 2009, Annie’s has been serving the wildest burgers in town, and is also a great place to grab a delicious breakfast.
The lucky winner will receive a two-night stay for two Monday – Sunday, subject to availability along with other fantastic prizes mentioned above.
To win this great prize all you have to do is enter your details, share on social, and tell us why you’re the best candidate to be Robin Hood’s apprentice.
Competition closes 4th January 2018.
