Newark has a year-long programme of events – from Continental Markets, Jazz & Food Festivals and Carnivals to Civil War re-enactments. There is a large selection of independent retailers and high street stores offering an eclectic mix of goods and services. Many of the shops face onto the historic market place which has regular open air markets. Newark is ideally placed for commuter links with the A46 to Nottingham and Lincoln, and the A1 for travel North and South.
