Travel Information

Bus: A five minute walk from Newark Bus Station
Train: It's an easy ten minute walk from both Newark Northgate station (LNER) with trains from London, Edinburgh and Leeds, and Newark Castle station (EMR) with trains from Derby, Nottingham and Lincoln.

The National Civil War Centre is dedicated to telling the human story of the British Civil Wars, with temporary galleries delving into more detail about issues such as propaganda, the role of women and the development of modern surgery.

The Newark Museum contains a tiny fraction of the 90,000 artefacts in our local history collection. These range from neolithic hand axes and a mammoth tooth to an Iron Age torc, a 19th century smock, the printing press used for Lord Byron’s first ever publication, and everything in between. The art collection includes works by Bridget Riley, Sir William Nicholson and Vanessa Bell.

The museum is operated by Heritage and Culture, Newark & Sherwood District Council, along with the Palace Theatre Newark and Newark Castle and Gardens. Now funded until 2026 by Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation, we are focussing on the Open Doors programme, opening access to arts and culture for communities which are currently underserved in the area. Look out for creative events, residencies and freelance opportunities for artists, and new fruitful partnerships in the East Midlands region.
