We live about half a mile away from Newstead Abbey and find it a lovely place to visit with our granddaughters or with the dog. The gardens (especially the Japanese) are beautiful and peaceful to walk around and there's a play area for the children too. The peacocks are always of interest to the children. There are a variety of craft fairs held throughout the year. Unfortunately, Notts County Council have decided that the Abbey will now only be opened on Sundays for viewing which is a shame, but if you can make it then it really is worth the tour, guided or otherwise.
