Tours > Robin Hood's Nottingham > Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
Castle Road, Nottingham (570394)

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham This interesting old pub, dating from 1189, is said to be the most ancient inn in England. Standing at the base of the castle rock, it was an ancient watering hole for King Richard's Crusaders whilst on their way to the Holy Land. Hence its name (Trip being old English for 'halt' or 'stopping place'). Of course, legend has it that Robin Hood and his men were frequent visitors, although there is no proof that it was the prototype of the several hostelries mentioned in old ballads.
