I was on my second visit to Nottingham and decided that we had to visit Sherwood Forest so that I could chat with Robin Hood. We found the Sherwood Forest reserve gave us a little idea of what Sherwood Forest was like 800 years ago. For example, some of the huge oaks are still around and some of the other forest plants and animals are also available for observation. There are a few walks which aren't too long, but which give an idea of the forest and some useful information panels. Our main disappointment was the sandwiches we bought for a late lunch, which were not particularly tasty. By the way, even though eight centuries old, Robin was aware of the modern world and we had a very good chat! For nature lovers as well as historians, Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre and the walks will give at least some hints as to what Britain was like so long ago.
