Welcome to Nottinghamshire
Say Nottinghamshire and people think of one thing – Robin Hood. Whether the hero woodsman existed is hotly debated, but the county plays up its connections to the outlaw. Storytelling seems to be in Nottinghamshire's blood – local wordsmiths include provocative writer DH Lawrence, of Lady Chatterley's Lover fame, and hedonistic poet Lord Byron. The city of Nottingham is the bustling hub; venture into the surrounding countryside and you'll discover historic towns and stately homes surrounding the green bower of Sherwood Forest.
