Doncaster Hotels

Combining historical Victorian Manor houses and Georgian churches with ultra-modern sports venues, Doncaster is a thriving town which knows how to move with the times. From its famous racecourse to the natural South Yorkshire beauty which envelops it, there is plenty here to explore and enjoy for adults and children alike. Wildlife watchers will be in their element, with several sites of interest to choose from, while committed urbanites can make the most of the shopping malls and entertainment venues.

Things to see

To acquaint yourself with the town and to soak up some of its history, take a walk through the city centre. Walking tours can be arranged at the Tourist Information Office if you want to learn a bit about the sights. Doncaster Minster is the most impressive building, its neo-gothic tower dominating the skyline. Inside, huge stained glass windows cast multicoloured light across the pews. Back on the bustling High Street, you can peruse the shops or, better yet, head down to Doncaster Market, which has been in business for centuries on the same spot. You’re sure to pick up a bargain here. For sports fans and families, the Doncaster Dome will provide hours of fun, whether you come to swim, ice-skate or watch a professional sporting event in the main arena. Another great family place is the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, where you’ll come face-to-face with tigers, giraffes and monkeys.
