"Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?" Entertaining 'His-Story' tours with a bit of fact... a lot of fiction… and even more fun

Newark-on-Trent is a gem of a town – packed full of history, but it has some shocking secrets and an awful, awful past…

Both tourists and locals alike are invited to join an alternative tour of this very special market town. Your host, Professor Bryan, (aka writer and actor Steve Cawte) will reveal some little-known secrets, mixed together with complete and utter fibs about some of the wonderful sights which can be found around and about the town. But can you spot the fact from the fiction?

This unique experience will begin at the beautifully restored Carriages Café. Positioned right on Platform 1 of Newark Castle Station, Carriages makes the perfect meeting place for those travelling to Newark by train. The former Railway Station building dates back to 1846 has its own Victorian 'His-Story' tale. Meanwhile it is just a few minutes from Newark Castle, where King John met his dramatic death in 1216.

Home to the National Civil War Centre together with one of the finest examples of a 17th Century Queen's Sconce, Newark is steeped in His-Story…

But these tours are not just for His-Story (or maybe we should call it Mis-Story!) buffs, the town is also home to MILLIONS of fantastic restaurants, quirky bars and cute cafes.

A Mis-Guided tour is the perfect introduction to Newark before visitors can head off and explore the town at their own leisure. This experience is not just for visitors though, even those who already live in Newark will love a little bit of His-Story.

*Includes small plate and tea or coffee
