Robin Hood attractions in Eastwood and beyond

Home to one of the most famous heroic outlaws in English Folklore, Eastwood and the surrounding areas in Nottinghamshire have a whole host of sites, attractions and tours regaling stories about the legend of Robin Hood. Particular places of interest are Nottingham Castle, which offers stunning views over the city from its positioning on a high rock, and of course the iconic Robin Hood statue located at the castle, where millions of visitors enjoy having their picture taken.

A literary landmark

A interesting museum offers an insight into D.H. Lawrence's working class birthplace and roots, as well as a wider look at early 20th Century social history. Regarded as one of the most polarising writers of his generation, Lawrence endured censorship and misrepresentation of his work throughout his life. There is also the Blue Trail walk which offers other places of interest pertaining to the novelist's life and experiences in Eastwood.
