Nottingham is a bland city especially after visiting Chester, Lakes and Loch Lomond.  There's not really much to say about it - the hostel we had was crappy, but it was clean and we both slept well in our bunks sharing the room with another guy.  Went to see the Tales of Robin Hood tour which was a tacky little tour about - can you guess - Robin Hood.  It was funny and the people that were acting in the era were really good.  It was a nice way to spend a few hours.  Close by is the castle which used to be Sheriff of Nottingham's place - but of course it isn't a castle anymore.  We spent quite a while walking around looking at the art and history of nottingham.  After that we headed off to see where Robin Hood and his Merry Men hung out - Sherwood forest.  The place would be cool when all the leaves and flowers come out providing great coverage - but it was pretty bare when we walked though.  After being a little bit disappointed with Nottingham and Sherwood we drove through Sherwood Pine forest.  This was much nicer because it seemed more like a forest - and Bec got to see a squirel.
