I took my children for the finale of the Robin Hood festival. I would recommend taking a picnic because the food and drink prices are extortionate. The festival was fantastic. The children loved it and loved exploring the Forrest. All the staff and “actors” were...More

We have been coming to Sherwood Forest on a regular basis (every few weeks) for years. We loved the Sunday lunch which was amazing and reasonably priced. We were sceptical on how the new center would be. I’m sorry to say we were very disappointed....More

Sherwood Forest is a really enjoyable place to while away a few hours, and to bask in history, nature, and tradition. It is inextricably linked with English folklore through its association with the legendary heroic outlaw Robin Hood. It is said that it was here...More

Yes, it's called Sherwood arrow, they don't run always. Better check times coz we missed @ 11 am bus. Bus directly goes into the forest & they pick you from the forest. No need to worry.
