There’s also the chance to view a lot of the costumes and pictures from the Michael Praed/Jason Connery series, then to have a chance to shoot a sort of longbow in a controlled environment. In sort, one of the best places to take any children with the slightest adventurous spirit!

i visited the tales of robin hood in 2006 and i found it very educational and very interesting a little over priced for a family ticket i had a go at the achery and i watched the little story about tring to find out who was the real robin hood and my doughter liked watching the little cinima in the food hall then you have got the gift shop and the cable car ride my doughter loved it so did my sons and so did iand my husband we would recamend it to anyone with children because even if its poaring with rain outside you can still stay dry because its a indoor atraction sorry to see it go maybe thay will reopen it as the legand of robin hood thay say that is whit thay are going to do but then you cannot belive every thing you read in the papers but i hope its true no day would be compleat without a visit to the castle and the statue of robin hood when i first got to nottingham i went and took some pictures of my family by the statue of robinhood lastly do you know who made the statue and when it was made because i would love to find out from s rodgers in portsmouth
I visited this attraction with my 2 children, the youngest was terrified, although i am not 100 % sure why. Its a journey through the time of Robin Hood. You are seated in a moving car and have a little ride. Whilst its informative i found it very expensive to go into the attraction. The gift shop was silly expensive prices. Which is a shame as this put me off going back again. The eldest enjoyed the experience but he could of learnt as much by our visiting the Nottingham Castle,which can be found a short walk away.
Aptly situated on Maid Marian Way, the Tales of Robin Hood is a fun day out for all the family.
Sitting in an “adventure car” you wind your way around Medieval Nottingham, experiencing the same sights and smells as people would during those times. This takes around one and a half hours, so the experience isn’t over too quickly. After the ride, parents and children are encouraged to get involved in games and have their photos taken with the merry men.
Current prices for a family of four is £26.95 although you can often find “kids go free” vouchers to help lessen the burden.
This is a really excellent place to visit with children. The 'Tales of Robin Hood’ is similar to the Jorvik Viking Centre in York where you sit in special cart which slowly moves through reinacted parts of this period of history. You are provided with the sounds and even smells that would have been experienced at the time. This helps to give an interesting and imaginative insight into this famous legend.
If you are visiting Nottingham, then this really should be on your list of places to visit, as it is quite fun, and should be pretty educational for children.
Last time I was in Medieval Costume in Nottingham I had to curtsey to the sheriff who was Indian..how times have changed! He looked magnificent in his robes on a white horse though. I also once applied for the job of Sheriff of Nottingham but that’s another story…
Did we all love Robin Hood as a child? Get grandad to make bows and arrows and gallop around as an outlaw..ok so I did! Anyway for kids of all ages including me…
Tales of Robin Hood is a tourist attraction in the heart of Nottingham’s city centre. A must see for all Robin Hood lovers! Travel back in time with Robin Hood to Medieval Nottingham. Will you join the outlaw band or be locked away in the stocks for supporting the Sheriff!?
I took a 6 year old who was terrified of the talking automaton of the sherriff and adored the real life Robin.
You can ride through Medieval Nottingham in cars and see, hear, touch and smell scenes from the days when Robin stole from the rich and gave to the poor – with the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his men in hot pursuit. Love the baddies.
In the evenings you can join Robin and maid Marian along with court jesters and musicians to entertain you while you enjoy a sumptuous medieval banquet ..yes a great veggie menu too!
Serving wenches are on hand to fill the plates and glasses for noble Lords and Ladies, whilst minstrels and specialty acts play on throughout the night.
Public medieval banquets take place every Friday and Saturday night throughout the year. The Grand Banqueting Hall is also available for private hire. Fairly sure you can even get married here.
Be a kid again..it’s fun!

Intersting tour through the legend of Robin Hood.
On the day my family went there was an actor who assisted in telling the possible stories of Robin Hood.
He also gave a demonstration to some of the weopons that may have been used at the time.
