About East Midlands
Robin Hood is only the beginning of your adventure
The East Midlands offers much to see and do at any time of year, whether you want to explore what’s probably the world’s most well-known forest – Sherwood Forest of Robin Hood fame – or stride out in the Peak District National Park.

The East Midlands also produces some very famous foodstuffs including Stilton, Cheese, the Melton Mowbray pork pie and the Bakewell Tart.
