We visited simply because of the legend of Robin Hood. Very friendly and helpful information, in fact all of the staff were lovely. It was raining but we decided to do the Green Walk, but somehow ended up completing the longer Red Walk, maybe because we wandered off the track to photograph the Long Horned cattle. The heavy rain, and did it rain, didn't deter us, although it got pretty muddy and wet in places. The Major Oak, a ten minute walk from the information centre is estimatd to be between 800 to a thousand years old, and while the supports might take away from the appearance a little, it is just a magnificent tree. Make what you will of the legend of Robin Hood, but we felt it was a lovely walk and well worth the visit. Perhaps the less favorable reviewers expect to be entertained and don't like exercise, but the information was interesting enough, although perhaps a little dated. No men in green tights though!
