Bus Routes
If you are travelling from Nottingham on the bus, stop at Ollerton but please note that there is no longer a local bus service to the Centre.

There is no direct bus route to the National Holocaust Centre from Newark North Gate or Retford train stations. You will need to take a taxi from the station. Taxi rides Monday to Friday from Newark North Gate cost about £20 – £25 one way and from Retford it will cost about £17 – £20 one way.

Visiting the Centre when there is snow or ice
As can be seen from the map on the Location page, the Centre is set in the middle of rural Nottinghamshire, and the road passing it, Acre Edge road is not considered to be a priority route by our local Highways Agency, so it is not gritted. Please therefore take the utmost care when driving to and from the Centre.
