Explore Newark-On-Trent town centre with two self-guided heritage walks with a treasure hunt theme. Discover Newark’s “hidden treasures” whilst having a fun day out with family and friends!
Newark is probably best known for its castle, built alongside the River Trent in 1123 by the Bishop of Lincoln – Alexander the Magnificent. King John died there in 1216 after eating a ‘surfeit of peaches’ – hope you don’t believe in ghosts! Newark is also famous for antiques and hosts the biggest antiques fair in Europe 6 times a year. British Sugar PLC runs a major factory there, processing 1.6 million tonnes of sugar beet a year. There’s a floating bar in a barge on the Trent, entry/exit via a gangplank – don’t drink too much!
