Best Things To Do & Days Out In Nottingham

Get your bow and arrow ready to aim for the most exciting things to do in Nottingham, home to the legend that is Robin Hood.

Start your day just outside of the city at the Sherwood Forest Country Park. Imagine running around the 450 acre woods with your band of Merry Men as you take money from the rich to give to the poor and fall asleep under the stars listening to the whisper of the wind in the trees around you.

See if you can find the Sheriff in Nottingham Castle, which holds treasures and artifacts from the 17th century. There’s also an amazing view of the city from the battlements. All heroes need to find a decent escape route, so join the tour of the castle caves. This labyrinth of secret passageways was manmade and leads to Kind David’s legendary dungeon!

You may have escaped capture at the castle on this Nottingham family day out, however the city caves reveal a hidden world, brought to life by an engaging audio tour and Archie and Annie the Archeologists.

The bright light of the sun will make you blink at first, so take the time to adjust before you jump head first into the fun at The Adrenalin Jungle. This open space is rammed full of activities offers quad biking, assault course, laser tag and much more.

You can even get your bow and arrow out again for archery practice. A hero’s work is never done after all.
