During the summer months, the car park is open 10am-5pm and in winter 10am-4:30pm.
Car parking costs £4 for non RSPB members and is chargeable for anything up to a full day, and is free for RSPB members, except during the Robin Hood Festival in August, when event parking fees apply to everyone.
Accessible car parking for disabled visitors is available adjacent to the Centre.

By Bus

The Sherwood Arrow bus service runs hourly from Victoria Bus Station in Nottingham and stops right outside the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre – with the direct journey taking approximately one hour.
Connecting Worksop, Retford and Nottingham with New Ollerton, Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre and Rufford, the service runs seven days a week.

Visitors should be aware that during the Robin Hood Festival in August, the bus does not stop at the Visitor Centre, but in Edwinstowe village – a 10 minutes’ walk away.
