ALWAYS NICE TO VISIT THE TOWN HALL
Aug 2021
Positioned at one end of the market square in Newark you will come across The Town Hall buildings. An awful lot goes on within The Town Hall, including some fabulous exhibitions.
Worth a visit

John & Jady enjoying a guided tour of Newark Town Hall 14th Aug 2019
Aug 2019
We enjoy our monthly visit to Newark Market, the town and people are all so friendly and it is a very pleasant experience. We have never visited the Town Hall Museum and Art Gallery, on every occasion we say we must explore this element its free admission too. So to day we decided to expand our knowledge of Newark, I took the stairs thinking only one flight oops two flights and a narrow stair case too, Jady took the lift a very wise move indeed. We were greeted by a number of people both staff, volunteers and a local artist too they were all so friendly and helpful. Initially we walked around the art gallery and museum and chatted to the artist who was in the final stages of completing an oil painting of the banks of the river Trent which runs through the town, his work on display in a particular section with scenes of Newark. Carol approached us and offered to guide us around the exhibits we took her up on her offer and our eyes were opened with the magnificent display of art, history objects and the display of photos of the various mayor's showing us more of the history of the town. We were escorted around the grand rooms including the ballroom area. I asked for permission to take photos all OK with Carol explained various historical elements and about the Civil War in England, Cromwell and the Royalist with Newark being at the centre of a number of conflicts four times in fact. We would highly recommend visitors to Newark town to take the opportunity to visit and explore the Town Hall establishment and hope our photos here give a better insight for all. Its free entrance and the facilities can and are used for wedding receptions a very grand venue we might add too, especially for photo opportunities.

Go to the museum, our friends said...

Actually, they meant the Civil War museum, but we saw this small museum instead! It was brought to life by a very enthusiastic guide, who regaled us wth lots of stories - including what Coventry was like in the Blitz when she found out we were from the West Midlands. It was a privilege to be there listening to her. The museum is up two flights of steps, so the lift is a good idea...

little gem

We stumbled across this place and glad we did. Walked up the steep staircase to the top floor to be greeted by a very welcoming guide named Jeff. He was extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have been more personable and helpful. He showed us the beautiful ballroom and the Major's parlour.
A great find and a great guide.

not worth a visit

So little here that it fails to deserve being called either a museum or an art gallery.
If you really do want to visit use the lift to the second floor. The stairs are very, very steep!

I really enjoyed this little museum of Newark Civic history. The paintings are so interesting and the Assembly Room is beautiful. If you are taken around by the very enthusiastic staff then it will all be explained thoroughly.
There is also a room that belongs to a really very small house too.
A good place to include in any visit to the historical town of Newark.
