Newark and Sherwood

Thursday, June 3, 2021

Charming towns, picturesque countryside and ancient woodlands all combine to make this area one of the Midlands’ most appealing.

The quintessential market town of Newark offers an array of tempting shops, cafés, eateries and historic pubs. Encounter a wealth of English history in the town’s stunning 12th Century riverside Castle, the National Civil War Centre, an inspiring air museum, and a cobbled market place overlooked by the Georgian Town Hall. 
Discover nearby Southwell, birthplace of the Bramley Apple, and often referred to as ‘the jewel in Nottinghamshire’s crown’. Experience its varied attractions including the Archbishop’s Palace, the austere Victorian Workhouse, the unique Museum of Timekeeping, and Southwell Minster - renowned for its twin ‘pepperpot’ towers. Stay and enjoy a wide choice of independent shops, inviting pubs and tearooms.
Explore the legendary Sherwood Forest, made famous by its association with Robin Hood and his Merry Men. This ancient woodland is home to precious natural wildlife habitats and beautiful country parks, open for a wide range of outdoor activities - from archery and cycling to walking trails and boating. Follow in Robin Hood’s footsteps and explore this legendary landscape. 
In Newark and Sherwood, there really is something for everyone to enjoy!
