For a relatively small market town on the flat land of Nottinghamshire, Newark-on-Trent holds great surprises. The city is located at the crossroads of the ancient Great North Road and the Roman road Fosse Way and was once as important a trade center as Nottingham. Its historical significance makes the city even today a wonderful experience.
At first glance, Southwell may seem like an ordinary English market town, but on closer inspection, historical sites of national importance reveal themselves. The city tells entertaining stories about the kings who once walked through their lanes, and is home to the Bramley apple.
