Nottingham is synonymous with the legend of Robin Hood. On this tour we explore the area around the city's castle, home to Robin's arch enemy, the Sheriff of Nottingham. Learn the history behind the Robin Hood stories, discover some of England's oldest pubs, find out the role the castle has played in the country's history and the lives of kings and queens who have stayed there.
Hello and thanks for visiting. I’m Ian, a professionally qualified guide. I hold the Blue Badge, which is the UK’s highest tour guiding qualification and have many years’ experience guiding in both English and German. My passion is sharing places and stories with people from around the world, and helping them discover more about this country and particularly the Midlands, where I have lived for almost all my life. I have a friendly and informal style and always aim to bring history to life with anecdotes about people and events rather than just dry facts. I love the sense of community with Heygo and enjoy seeing the same people joining multiple tours. On all of my tours you can expect information, humour and friendly conversation. I want you to sit back, relax and enjoy the experience as you take a walk with your new friend in England. Wherever in the world you are from, I look forward to giving you the warmest of British welcomes.

Great tour of Nottingham with Ian. As the area where the legend of Robin Hood took place, I found Ian`s information very interesting:it`s a period of history that intrigues me. Loved the sculpture of Robin Hood:) Ian is always well informed, knows his subject matter inside out. Today, he donned a Robin Hood cap: very dapper;)
