Visit Newark – established by the Newark Accommodation Providers (NAP) group aims to bring people in to the town of Newark-on-Trent and to boost footfall for local accommodation providers and businesses.
From Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs) to Hotels and Self-Catering, the Visit Newark website has a whole host of accommodation providers for those looking to stay in Newark.
The Visit Newark website also has information on upcoming events, activities, where to eat and travel information to help visitors get to and from the town.
Speaking to Newark Advertiser, Visit Newark Chairman Richard Whiles said “Our mission is that we want to co-operate with people to promote the area. I have already spoken to individuals who would like their businesses promoted”. Richard added “My belief is that when Newark succeeds, we all succeed. This is a fantastic opportunity to shout louder for Newark, with the right approach and with people working together, maybe over the next five years we can attract one million more people.”
Jonathan Pass of Kelham Hall & Country Park will be assisting Richard Whiles as Vice-Chairman of Visit Newark. With Kelham Hall being both a tourist attraction and a location for accommodation, it is an ideal fit as his experience matches the idea of the Visit Newark brand.
A list of various accommodation providers can be found on a redesigned modern and fresh page under Places to Stay.
The logo uses the classic map pin shape which incorporates Newark’s unique landscape. This is accompanied by the ‘Stay | Explore | Shop’ strap-line. The design enables the logo to be used in black and white, can be reversed out or in standalone. The two key colours have been adopted for the brand – a ‘Newark Blue’ and a ‘Town Red’ but can be used in multiple colourways depending on use.

A ‘postcard’ was designed for social media use, promoting the idea of repeated visits to Newark incorporating the popular “Eat, Sleep, Repeat” phrase.
Visit Newark looked to local brand and interactive agency Bazzoo to make the website, design promotional materials as well as providing social media advice to increase brand awareness of Visit Newark. Richard Whiles mentioned that “Bazzoo were fantastic. They interpreted our brief – designing a new brand, website and promotional film. They delivered the project on time and within budget. The team were a pleasure to work with.”
