Take the whole family on a trip to the 17th Century; the National Civil War Centre will send you right back in time with loads of interactive exhibits.
The incredible HD cinema is definitely the place to start if you’re looking to bring the era to life. Then jump into Civil War costumes and take a unique family photo from your time travelling adventure. Let the little ones explore the museum through exciting trails where you'll get to take Prince Rupert's dog on a walk and also become part of the Royal Cavalry!
Newark’s Civil War history spills out of the museum and threads through the streets of the town with the National Civil War Trail. The trail starts at the Centre and takes in Newark Castle, St Mary Magdalene Church and the historic Queen’s Sconce, an amazing sight and one of the last of its kind in the UK.
