About Newark-on-Trent

As it's name implies, this town enjoys a fine position on the River Trent. The great castle where King John died in 1216 lies in ruins on the banks of the river. The castle was the scene of many skirmishes during the dark period of the Civil War, when it was left ravaged and has remained so since.

There are several fine buildings in the town, of particular note is the 14th-century Olde White Hart which has a wonderful overhanging facade. Newark has a long and illustrious history and for those who would wish to research the life and times of the town, Newark museum is a must. The soaring tower of the church of St.Mary Magdalene, rises majestically over the town to a height of over 250ft. The church dates mostly 15th-century with the crypt being the earliest part of the building. The glorious east window in the chancel is late 15th-century. This is a beautiful church, it is a constant source of fascination and shows many treasures including a fine collection of church silver and monuments. Nottingham Aircraft museum is close to the town, here you will find an interesting collection of historic aircraft including a Vulcan Bomber.

This is a lively and pleasant town of delightful streets and lovely gardens. There are excellent shopping facilities and several interesting inns and public houses.
