Newark Castle

Situated on the banks of the River Trent, Newark is a picturesque town steeped in history. The ruins of Newark Castle have had a huge influence on the unique character of the town. Though the current remains were built in the early 12th century, there has been a castle on the site since 1068. Left in ruins by a turbulent history,  the grounds were landscaped in 1887.

Newark’s market place is overlooked by the Georgian Town Hall. The town has become famous for its six annual antiques fairs, held at Newark County Showground, and thousands of antique hunters from across the world descend on the fair’s 4,000 stalls in search of a bargain.

Other attractions near the town include the Newark Air Museum – home to 65 aircraft and cockpit sections. Nearby, in  North Clifton, is also home to a relaxing meditation centre and Japanese garden.

Markets are held in NEWARK on the following days:

Monday (except bank hols) - Antique and Craft stalls
Wednesday - General Retail Market
Thursday - Antique and Craft Market
Friday - General Retail Market
Saturday - General Retail Market
