Newark Northgate Rail Station
Newark, a lovely market town halfway between Nottingham and Lincoln in the East Midlands, has a sizeable community but still retains plenty of rural charm. The famous castle, which is a major tourist attraction, was built in 1068 following the Norman Conquest. The town is steeped in history, but today it’s mainly the independent shops that draw in the crowds, along with Newark’s delightful location on the banks of the River Trent. Leave your car at NCP’s Newark car park at Northgate Rail Stn and you’ll have only a short walk into the centre of town.
There’s a farmers’ market on Thursdays, and Newark is also full of traditional pubs and historic coaching inns. In the market square you’ll be able to enjoy a ploughman’s lunch at the Hobgoblin, a traditional pub built in the black and white Tudor style and full of black oak furnishings and mandatory creaking floorboards!
There are numerous formal gardens and stately homes in the surrounding area, too, so make use of NCP’s Northgate Rail Stn car park and head out to explore the beautiful and historic surroundings. This is Robin Hood country, peppered with ruined castles and abbeys, which are all popular visitor destinations.
The River Trent at Newark was used for centuries to drive the local water mills, and the town was also an important centre for the wool trade. You can see restored working machinery and a wide range of artefacts from those days at the Millgate Museum Navigation House, which was originally a warehouse and oil seed mill. Book your space in advance at the nearby NCP Northgate Rail Stn car park and enjoy a day on the riverbank without worrying about finding parking in Newark.
