The 5 Best Places to Visit in Newark

Here at BB, we're proud to be one of Newark's many local small businesses and we truly believe that it's a fantastic place to call home.

Whether you're already living in Newark, considering moving here or planning a trip, we hope this post will help to highlight just some of the wonderful features of our historic market town.

1) Newark Castle

History oozes from every corner of Newark and no more so than at the gorgeous Newark Castle and gardens.  Situated on the banks of the River Trent, the 900 year old ruins make a wonderful day out, whether it be for a walk or picnic in the beautiful gardens or for one of the guided tours around the dungeons and towers where King John spent his last night.

2) National Civil War Centre

If history is your thing then you'll also love the National Civil War Centre, where you'll find a range of fun ways to learn more about the Civil War that helped shape our country's future. You can experience one of their interactive trails or even attend one of the many events or exhibitions that the museum host over the course of the year.

3) Newark Air Museum

For a taste of rather more recent history, the Newark Air Museum offers a really entertaining day out. The museum’s diverse collection of aircraft and cockpit sections is displayed on approximately 16 acres of the former site of RAF Winthorpe. Most of the aircraft collection is now displayed inside two purpose built hangars to help protect the exhibits and visitors from any bad weather.

It's worth keeping an eye out for the many events that the museum hold during the year for an extra special visit.

4) Newark Royal Market

Yep, even the market is trip-worthy! Regular stall holders include fruit and vegetables, cut flowers and plants, clothes, shoes and leather goods, bread and cakes, fresh fish, pet foods, crafts, bedding, meat, free range eggs, fabrics, jewellery, watches and watch batteries/repairs, containers, books and carpets.

Special or season markets are also held throughout the year.  These include:

  • Every first Saturday in the month (March - December) - Farmers Market
  • Every last Saturday in the month - Collectors/Antique quarter
  • Every last Sunday in the month - Artisan Craft and Food market
  • June - Annual Food and Drink Festival
  • July - Newark Book Festival and Newark Traditions Festival
  • Last Sunday in November - Newark Christmas Lights Switch On
  • December 14th and 15th 2019 - Newark Christmas Market and Winter Feast

5) St Mary Magdalene Church

This beautiful church is yet another example of Newark's rich history. Over 800 years old, the church is particularly notable for the tower and the octagonal spire (236 feet (72 m) high), the highest in Nottinghamshire and reputed to be the fifth tallest in the UK.

Tower tours are available - or you can just soak up some of the atmosphere at the church's newly opened coffee bar.

Absolutely delighted with the service we received from Dean. The advice we received was timely and thorough; the service provided went above and beyond our expectations compared to other mortgage advisors we have used in the past and the whole application process was made straightforward and stress free. Overall, an excellent value for money service that I would highly recommend.

Mr L

Mr L hadn’t sold his house but had found the house of his dreams, we arranged a mortgage that allowed him to buy his new house without selling and a mortgage that was flexible enough for him to pay a large amount off when he sells his house.

Miss G

Miss G sold her house and had found a new house, it all looked straight forward but she had a historical bankruptcy which meant lots of lenders were declining her. We found her a mainstream high street lender that would offer a mortgage even with her previous bankruptcy.

Mr W

Mr W works abroad but wanted to buy a buy to let property, most lenders will require him to own and live in in a mortgaged property in the UK, however we found a lender that would lend at sensible interest rates for a new buy to let purchase.

Mr C

Mr C wanted to buy a student house in Lincoln via a limited company to take advantage of the income tax benefits of this. He spoke with other brokers and high street lenders all of which said it wasn’t possible. We found a building society who specialise in this with sensible fees and interest rates.
