We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the castle and caves with the official Robin Hood. It was entertaining and interesting. Great for kids and although we were the only ones without children the tour was still great.

This mansion is worth a visit for exhibitions and historical displays lovers. I loved it inside.
You will have a good city view from the “castle” and nice stroll weather permitting in the gardens, not to mention the chance to have a picture next to the heroic Robin Hood statue.

Gardens and views are lovely, very strange driving past all the big buildings in Nottingham to come across this place. Some of it was interesting some of it a little less so depends what u are into, i personally prefer the rustic true medieval feel to castles but here everything was in cabinets and no photography in parts its worth a visit but i wouldnt go back.

I loved the view of the city from the castle. There were amazing green fields and flowers on the way to it. Robin Hood statue is located near that. I dont think there is a need for an entrance fee at all, especially that there is another fee if you want to go inside and see the musuem.

Search for the dates and times of tour of the Robin Hood caves before you go

There is a small distance of a steep road and some stairs to get there.
