London is the easiest and fastest city to fly into, as there are many direct trains every day to Newark-on-Trent.
There are closer airports (Doncaster Sheffield, and East Midlands), but neither have a train station, and both involve buses and trains to get to Newark-on-Trent, which can be time consuming and inconvenient.
The fastest train from London Kings Cross only takes 1hr 15mins to reach Newark and has no changes.
