do you ahve to stay in Newark, with transport you could go here or here or explore Sherwood forest

Thanks, looked at the links, bit pricey for a "filler", but might go to sherwood forest. Let the kids tire themselves out a bit. Walk round the town, bit of tea, sorted.

Thanks all.

At NEwark near the bridge across from the castle ruin is a lovely park, sandpit, slide, swings, little pirate boat, picnic area and pay and display carpark. Train station quite near so several trains going by - my ds loves it!!!

If raining also bowling alley in town area (10mins walk from castle).

Zizzi's restuarant, Pizza Express and Waitrose all 3-5 mins from park. Waitrose do lunch boxes (same as John Lewis) for around £2.95 5 items and a drink. Macdonalds down the road.

they also have a market on the main square area on a Friday

Thanks for that, the park sounds lovely. And I am very happy that Pizza Express has been mentioned. Now I need to find some vouchers!!

Weather sounds as if it's going to be grim though. Shall have to dig the waterproofs out.sad
