Doncaster

UK travel information

A large town in South Yorkshire, England, Doncaster is a great example of a British town, with loads of fun things to see and do both in and around the area.

Doncaster’s nearest city is Sheffield, located around 20 miles away, and is easily accessed by both road and public transport, where you can find even more to do. Amongst the attractions at Doncaster is Hatfield Water Park, which offers excellent water sports facilities with friendly instructors on hand for beginners. A short trip from the centre of the town is The Dome, one of the UK's top sports and leisure attractions featuring The Lagoons, a magical 7-pool water world.
