5 Reasons To Move To Newark-on-Trent
Unless you’re from Nottinghamshire and know the area well, Newark might not be a town that’s on your radar. However, in this guide, we’re looking at reasons to move to historic Newark-on-Trent. British writer, Tom Dyckhoff, even described Newark as ‘the nicest biggish town’ in the East Midlands and a ‘genuine surprise’. Let’s find out what the town has to offer in our guide.
Why Move To Newark?
Elegant Georgian Town Centre
The market square offers a Georgian town hall and the elegant church spire of St Mary Magdalene. If you like cobbled streets and Georgian architecture, the town centre is the ideal setting.
Newark is a growing town, with the new Middlebeck community offering a family-friendly setting. Promising to be more than just a new housing development, developers have worked hard to bring a positive, community feel. So, if you fancy a newly built house in an up-and-coming neighbourhood, this could be the perfect place.
Buoyant Housing Market
The town has clearly increased in popularity over the past couple of years, possibly as a result of the pandemic which saw more and more people looking to move away from urban cities. In fact, Newark saw the second-largest increase in house prices in the UK, according to national rankings. This certainly suggests that it’s a desirable place to live.
Great Transport Links
You’ve probably read many articles that shout about a town’s fantastic transport links, to later be a little disappointed. However, with Newark, when we say that the train links are great, we mean it. There are even plans to join the HS2 East Coast Mainline in the town. There are two train stations: Newark Northgate and Newark Castle.
As for road links, you’re not more than a 40-minute drive from Lincoln and Nottingham, two key cities in the East Midlands.
Historic attractions include the likes of Newark Castle, an Air Museum and the National Civil War Centre Museum.
