Newark/Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Discover the intriguing histories of Newark Castle and Nottingham Castle, and enjoy an easy journey between them on the Castle Line railway.

With 1,000 years of history onsite, Nottingham Castle sits perched high upon a sandstone outcrop above the city, the ideal place to start you journey. Nearby enjoy a stylish meal at World Service restaurant, just a stone’s throw from the Castle walls and one of the last remaining 17th century high class homes of that period.

Hop on the train to Newark on the Castle Line, with a journey time of just 22 minutes, where you’ll arrive next to Newark Castle upon the banks of the mighty River Trent. Take a tour into the dungeons below, and then treat yourself to a meal and pint in the Prince Rupert pub, home to more than 500 years of history.
