Historic Newark-on-Trent

9th July, 2015 | Article By Newark TIC

Have you discovered us yet? Newark-on-Trent is an attractive market town in the heart of Nottinghamshire. We are situated where the Great North Road, the Roman Fosse Way and the River Trent join together. We have excellent public transport links and are close to the major road networks including the A1, A46 and M1 so wherever you are, you can reach us easily.

Rich in history with delightful architecture, museums and the remains of the imposing 12th century Newark Castle, we have an excellent selection of independent and antique shops, eating places and real ale pubs. Newark has one of the largest market squares in the country and we hold bustling markets on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The town’s most famous period was during the English Civil War in which it was a Royalist stronghold and withstood three sieges. At the newly opened National Civic War Centre discover how the people of Newark survived  by dodging cannon fire, hammering flat family silver to make coins, only for plague to ravage the town.

You can visit our website Visit Newark to find out more, or follow us @morenewark we look forward to welcoming you.
