Robin Hood Leads the Way for Two New Themed, Guided Tours of Nottingham

Legendary folklore and modern charm collide in Nottingham, a destination known throughout the world as the home of outlaw hero Robin Hood – a character whose world-renowned tale has been retold over 800 years through medieval ballads, literature, television, film and theatre. The new itinerary will help tour operators plan trips to England, which explore the legend and other literary greats associated with Nottingham. The itinerary also suggests a trip to Newstead Abbey, a former home of one of Britain’s greatest poets, the ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ Lord Byron. Visitors are invited to wander the grand gardens and romantic ruins of this 300-acre estate and meet the rebel Lord himself exploring his life story on a character-led guided tour of the 12th century abbey. The two new guided walking tours; The Robin Hood Town Tour with Lunch at England’s Oldest Inn and The Legend of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest Tours both invite visitors to join award-winning character-led guide - Ezekial Bone. Ezekial Bone presents in the guise of Robin Hood, explaining the history of the legend and exploring historic Nottingham before passing over to expert guides, Cultural Heritage Tours, for an onward adventure to explore the historic landscapes of Sherwood Forest. The experiences have been created following extensive international research which identified that more than a third of overseas visitors want to see places from film and literature, and that almost half of them visited museums, art galleries, castles or historic houses on previous trips. The itineraries also recommend accommodation, with a focus on trade or group-friendly properties and those that relate to the theme or are quintessentially English. Also recommended are complementary experiences including food experiences, landscapes famous for film locations or other local sites of interest.
