Newark is an attractive traditional market town which is located around 8 miles south of Sutton on Trent. It has a pleasant cobbled Georgian market square which hosts markets on most days, including Wednesday which is the main market. The town still hosts a traditional cattle market also on a Wednesday.
It is a market town steeped in history with a dramatic castle and two museums, including the new state of the art National Civil War Centre. Oliver Cromwell fought battles against the Royalists just outside Newark and King John was poisoned and died at the Castle.
Newark has a year-long programme of events – from Continental Markets, Jazz & Food Festivals and Carnivals to Civil War re-enactments.
Newark -on- Trent plays host to Europe’s largest Antiques Fair, which is held six times a year. Newark Showground is a venue for many interesting events including the national Lamma event (the UK’s largest agricultural machinery show).
The castle is well worth a visit with its superbly kept grounds and its beautiful walls, it’s the perfect place for a picnic on a sunny afternoon or after a stroll down one of the many lovely river walks. The town also hosts a beautiful Church just off the Market Square.
Newark is also a great location for antique shopping or you can take a walk around the Civil War Trail. In the evening a visit to the Palace Theatre or the Odeon Cinema or a quiet meal at any of the range of restaurants are on offer.
