Project Description

Journey back in time to explore Newark’s pivotal role in the deadly Civil War…

The National Civil War Trail takes visitors on a unique journey to explore key sites around Newark such as Newark Castle and the Queen’s Sconce. By downloading a purpose-built app, users can immerse themselves in the fascinating stories of national and local historical characters including King Charles I and John Twentyman (a local eye witness).

The stories are told through dramatic high quality film clips, which can be accessed easily through a smartphone or tablet device, when content is triggered by Augmented Reality technology at each location along the trail. Alternatively, a traditional paper version of the trail is available from the National Civil War Centre and the route can be followed in any order.
