Newark Town Hall Museum 
 
Newark Town Hall
Newark Market Place, one of the largest cobbled squares in the country, is dominated by the Town Hall, designed in the Palladian style in 1776 by John Carr of York. 

It was originally constructed as two seperae houses with the centre part consisting of the portico, entrance hall, Buttermarket and staircases leading to the Council Chamber and Ballroom. 

However, the Assembly Rooms soon grew inadequate, so alterations were made and doors cut through to the two adjacent houses which then became part of the Town Hall.

Today, visitors to the Grade 1 listed building can see the Mayor's Parlour, Council Chamber and the elegant 18th Century Assembly Room.

Other rooms within the Town Hall comprise a museum with displays of historic civic plate and regalia, an art gallery with a fine collection of paintings by notable local artists, and a temporary exhibition space for local community groups.

Take a free guided tour and see more of Newark's hidden gem.  Every year, thousands of visitors go behind the scenes to see some magnificent rooms, top quality art, and fascinating objects.
