Entry to the castle grounds is free of charge. Newark Castle and Gardens are lovely, formal gardens bordered by the remaining walls of Newark Castle which was partly destroyed in 1646 at the end of the English Civil War. The Castle has stood proudly...more

Newark Castle stands majestically at the entrance of this historic market town. What a lovely sight....only now it is spoilt by overgrown trees and bushes blocking some views from the riverside...... so I have to say it does not now resemble the photograph shown by...More
Absolutely brilliant! This is a fantastic place to wander around and discover local history and fascinating facts that are fun! Remember King John from Robin Hood kids, well he died here! The Knights Templars used this place as a resting base. There are excellent tours...More
Dominant castle close to the centre of Newark, certainly worth a visit if passing through the town. Free entry, numerous information boards detailing its long and varied history. Not a lot of it remains, but what does is certainly impressive.
Interesting ruins from an important time in British history ... if you know about the English civil war, this is a pivotal venue to visit. Not much of the structure of the castle remains but there are several info boards that paint a picture of...More
Although only limited remains this is nevertheless an impressive piece of history on the outskirts of a lovely market town. Not to be missed if close by. Coupled with the history of the civil war it gets quite special, to me at least.
A spontaneous debut visit to Newark introduced me to the castle remains which I did not expect and which excited me. My visit was all the better for it. Definitely worth a wander around the well kept grounds which are more like a small garden...More
We went here for a walk around after shopping in Newark. It was a very pleasant find, the walk along the canal was nice and peaceful, and we took lots of photos of the castle. Would definitely go again.

Hello. The castle was open as advertised on Wednesday 4th and 11th April from 10am to 2pm and the King John Exhibition open in the North West Tower so I can only think you may of come outside the advertised opening hours. After the castle was slighted in the 17th century after the Civil war of 1642 to 1646, 30% of the original Castle remains. It wasn't rebuilt by the Victorians but they did some additions to secure areas of castle that were in decay. I hope this helps.
