6. Sherwood Forest
The legend of Robin Hood is known worldwide and the infamous Sherwood Forest is less than an hour away from Nottingham. It is the perfect place for a day out in the nature. You can learn more about the Robin Hood legend in the tourist centre and take a walk leading up to the Major Oak, which is thought to be at least 800-1000 years old. A longer walk takes you around a bigger part of the forest, but for more adventurous types there is also a Go Ape high rope course within Sherwood Forest.
