Thursday To nearby Eastons Gardens where we have a meet and greet followed by time to explore the estate and walled gardens that have been 450 years in the making. The snowdrops spread across both banks of the river and release wafts of perfume on sunny days. Later, we head over to the picturesque town of Newark-on-Trent, an authentic British market town, full of historical streets, castles, cakes and boutiques! You can unveil the unique character shaped by the ruins of Newark Castle present as early as the year 1068, where Oliver Cromwell fought battles against the Royalists and King John was poisoned.
