About Doncaster

Doncaster is a beautiful market town located in South Yorkshire with a variety of interesting historical sights, monuments and museums. There are so many things to explore from the city’s rich culture to wonderful green parks and gardens.

One of the most iconic landmark of the area is the Conisbrough Castle built almost 1000 years ago. The medieval castle has a legendary story owned by many kings and queens, and it’s also the inspiration of Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe. You must discover the castle’s famous history through interactive displays and guided tours.

Get a glimpse into the British past and visit the beautiful Brodsworth Hall and Gardens, which represents the city’s opulent Victorian traditions. It’s perfect for a day out, just stroll down the wonderfully maintained green gardens and experience its rich history.

If you are looking for more adventurous fun to enjoy the Yorkshire countryside, then you must visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Get to know more than 70 species, and maybe take a photo with the lions and bears! If you are a nature person, then do not miss the peaceful Potteric Carr Nature Reserve and the many beauties of Mother Nature! A visitor centre just recently opened there, so you can enjoy the spectacular view with a cup of English tea.

Doncaster is also a modern metropolis, so you can take advantage of many shopping and nightlife opportunities as well. The city is a paradise for shopaholics: Doncaster was the winner of BBC Best Food Market with some 400 shops!
