As Ezekiel Bones will explain with humour, learning and the passion borne of 20 years of research, Robin is a composite character, built on medieval episodes and woven into song and romance by bards and story tellers over generations. The most recent contributor to this ongoing legend of a champion of the poor and oppressed is Ezekiel himself, who tells the story, not only of Robin, but of Nottingham as well, making this tour one of the highlights of any tour of England. In telling the truth about the legend of Robin Hood, Ezekiel reminds us all of the timeless need for champions to stand up for good in the face of oppression and becomes, by example, a modern contributor to the composite that is Robin Hood. Kudos for one of the most delightful afternoons I can remember. And to put the icing on the cake, he recommended dinner at the Hand and Heart, but that is another story.

Absolutely brilliant tour, with a brilliant guide. Ezekiel breath the stories of Robin Hood, and presents them in a fascinating way. Unbelievable amount of knowledge is hidden behind the "cheesy" costume, don't be fooled! History of the city, the evolution of the myth, and how did Tuck and Maryann joined the story - its all weaved into 2.5-3 hours walk around the city.
I highly recommend it!

Ezekial weaves a wonderful entertainment, combining the history of Nottingham and the creation of the legend of Robin Hood over the centuries. With encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject, spell-binding story-telling, theatrical flourish, social commentary and marvellous humour, this is a not-to-be-missed experience. Highly recommended.

‘Robin Hood’ is so enchanting, that it is easy to see how the Nottingham Robin Hood Town Tour is rated as the #1 Nottingham tour. His character makes it what it is - engaging, educational, enjoyable, interesting and simply an unforgettable experience.
I was looking for an activity in the area for myself, my husband and my daughter; after some research I decided to book the walking tour based on its excellent reviews. However, when I discussed my plans for Saturday afternoon with my family, my husband quickly replied ‘if it’s some bloke dressed up in tights I’m not coming”. I’m so pleased I decided not to tell him that part. When we arrived to start the tour, my husband’s face was a picture when Robin Hood appeared in full costume! Thankfully the promise of a pint of ale at the end of tour quickly made it all ok and we all had a merry time, even the teenager thought it was outstanding.
If you’d like to find out about the history of Nottingham and the legend of Robin Hood, don't let the costume put you off and make time to take this tour – you won’t be disappointed.

We did not really know what to expect from this tour but thought it might be fun. It turned out, however, to be a very informative walk around town in which our Robin Hood deconstructed the Robin Hood legend, managed to intriguingly tell us the story of how historical facts, literary personas and the power of the imagination all got blended into one to give us the wonderful story of the ultimate man in tights. And he did it with an appropriate dose of humour as well!
