Great place to get married. Unique location: the building stands on the edge of a castle ground. At first it was a library (build for the citizens of Newark by the Gilstrap family), then - community centre. Very nice facade.

Got married here in November and it was lovely. Staff are really helpful and make you feel comfortable. Great location to have some fantastic photos in the park behind the Gilstrap with the castle in the background.
