Win big and live it up like an #Outlaw in Nottingham this Christmas!

Christmas Comp Banner2

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.


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.

ye-olde-trip-to-jerusalemOnce 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.
