Shopping and Gifts

From Robin Hood-inspired outfits and toy archery sets to loads of goodies for the wildlife in your outdoor space at home, there are plenty of ways to show your allegiance to our legend and our planet in our shop.

We’ve got games, books, dressing up, cuddly toys, scarves, cosmetics, candles and treats to eat, and lots, lots more.

And for the medievalists among you, why not pick up an ornate goblet or even a Sherwood chess set?

It all helps to support the work of the RSPB.

Goblets, tankards and glassware

We’re thrilled to have the Nemesis range of goblets, tankards and glassware in our shop this summer. Their intricate designs have all the pomp and pageantry of Medieval banners and coats of arms.

They make the ideal drinking vessel when you’re in a Medieval mood, whether your favourite tipple is an ale, mead, wine or even water.

Gin, beer and mead

We now stock locally brewed ales from the Lincoln Green Brewing Company.

The refreshing range includes Hood Best Bitter, Marion Pale Ale, Sherwood Extra Pale, Archer American IPA and Tuck Porter.

Alternatively – or as well as – why not try something from the Castle Gate gin selection crafted with the finest botanicals by Weavers of Nottingham?

The collection offers classic dry gin, pink strawberry and lavender, Mead gin and Vodka gin.

For those of you who prefer to try something a little sweeter, we also have Nidhoggr’s fine traditional mead, so you too can sup like the Jolly Friar.


Take home a wonderful and practical memento of your visit to Sherwood Forest, including our exclusive range created by artist Julia Gash.

We have notebooks, tote bags, bookmarks, prints, mugs and magnets, not to mention beautiful wooden acorn door wedges and key rings.
