Newark Castle and Gardens

Open from 8:30AM - dusk.

Newark Castle and Gardens are lovely, formal gardens bordered by the remaining walls of Newark Castle which was partly destroyed in 1646 at the end of the English Civil War. The Castle has stood proudly on the banks of the River Trent for nearly 900 years.

Guided tours of the Castle are conducted by the Castle Ranger every week. All tours last approximately one hour and tickets cost £5 for adults, £2.50 for children aged 3 and over, or £12.50 for a family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children. The tours normally run on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please click here for more information on the tours.
Please note: Guided Tours are suspended from 29th October 2017 to 2nd March 2018

Surfaced pathways in the castle and gardens allow suitable access for wheelchairs. During the visit, relax in the quiet garden areas and admire the picturesque views. Entertainment often occurs seasonally, with a bandstand for concerts available, and makes for a great day out.

Newark Castle and Gardens offer nearby parking, so it is easily accessible by car. It is also close to historic market places; Southwell market and Newark market, so why not visit the pretty market towns too.
