Doncaster, United Kingdom

Travel to Doncaster

Doncaster is a large town in South Yorkshire in the north of England. It's often referred to as "Donny" and to the Romans it was Danum. Their main highway Ermine Street ran from London through Lincoln to the Humber then to York, but crossing the Humber was sometimes impractical. So they created an alternative route through Danum that in modern times became the Great North Road then A1. Doncaster remained a small market town until the 19th century, when it industrialised through coal-mining, and the East Coast railway line arrived. Much of the industry has gone; in 1961 the A1 was re-routed to the west as a motorway.

The TIC is in the Mansion House in town centre, corner of High Street and Priory Place.
