Great for Wedding Ceremonies

We were here last week for a wedding and the setting is perfect. Beautiful old building with access to the castle and gardens for photos! Nick was splendid.

Beautiful wedding venue
Apr 2018 • Family
We held our wedding here 5th April 2018. The building itself is lovely and the castle walls and lawned areas with flower beds at the back of the registry office are great for photographs. A lovely setting for a wedding
The staff are very helpful and do a wonderful job.
There wasn't parking available outside the venue at the time of our visit as there was some work being carried out by water company but this wasn't a problem as there's a carpark available just around the corner a few minutes walk away.

Amazing wedding venue
May 2017 • Couples
My partner and I got married here at the end of May, the service was lovely as were the staff. It is a great location with the castle directly behind you for photographs. Parking is just over the road. Everything was made very straightforward and easy.

A great location for our wedding
Sep 2016 • Couples
We got married there on 24th September. It’s a lovely building located in front of the remains of Newark Castle and gardens which presented great photo opportunities.

The staff (Helen and Jackie) were both really helpful and they made us feel comfortable and relaxed from the outset.

The only downside is the lack of easy parking outside for guests; this was solved in our case with a stretch limo which fitted into the reserved space close to the door (for which we were provided a short stay permit).

My cousin and wife got married here on the 1st weekend in June 2015 and I worried about a registry office setting but wow what a bonus that you get to have a swift ceremony and then amazing photos in the grounds of Newark Castle in which it is situated.

Great for a small wedding
Nov 2014 • Family
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.

Registry office now. Great wedding day.
May 2014 • Couples
I was married here in May last year. The place is great. The wedding went very smoothly and the whole building had recently been renovated so it was all clean and fresh. The Castle gardens right outside the door are great for wedding photos. The only downside is the lack of easy parking outside.

Now a registry office, wonderful location
Dec 2013 • Friends
The Gilstrap Centre has been completely revamped, I attended a friends wedding here, it was such a lovely building and surrounding area. It really is a truly magnificent place to hold a wedding ceremony, and afterwards the grounds are superb for photo opportunities. The only problem we found was parking and dropping off the bride and groom, the traffic warden was ready to pounce!

Important spot
Oct 2012 • Family
What an important spot for tourists. I took my family here when they visited me from the USA for my wedding in 2011 and they really enjoyed it. Now it's shut down. And what for?? This town need to realize that places like this are worth keeping up and more important than needing to involved in budget cuts!!
