New Homes in Doncaster

Welcome to Doncaster

Whether you’re shopping in the town centre, exploring historic sites or taking a walk in the countryside, the market town of Doncaster is a vibrant and diverse place to live. Just a short drive from Sheffield, a new home in Doncaster is ideal if you’re looking for good transport links and easy access to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

A quick history

Doncaster grew around a Roman fort, and was on the Roman road between Lincoln and York. The town was later occupied by the Anglo-Saxons, and after the Norman invasion, Conisborough Castle was built. By the 13th century, Doncaster was a bustling town and was granted a charter for a market to be held, and a century later was one of the wealthiest places in Yorkshire.

The town continued to thrive throughout the decades, and many stately homes were built by landowners in the area. The Market Hall and Corn Exchange were built in the 19th century, and rebuilt after a fire in 1994.

Business and industry

Doncaster is home to a number of major businesses including DFS Furniture, Ballyvesey Holdings, Polypipe Group and Burrows Motor Company. Big employers in neighbouring Sheffield include construction product company SIG, Insight Direct (UK) and Novoferm Europe, while Rotherham is home to Maplin Electronics, C F Booth and A.E.S Engineering.

Things to do in the area

Doncaster is a vibrant shopping destination, home to Frenchgate Shopping Centre, Waterdale Shopping Centre and Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping. There are a number of cultural sights in the centre including Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery, and the live music venue Doncaster Dome, while regular horse races take place at Doncaster Racecourse.

For families, there are lots of kid-friendly attractions close to the town including South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Potteric Carr Nature Reserve and Boston Park Farm. Historic places of interest nearby include Conisborough Castle, The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft, Ashworth Barracks Military Museum and Cusworth Hall.

If you like watching sports, you can watch Doncaster Rovers FC and the Doncaster Rovers Belles play football at the Keepmoat Stadium, while you can get active at the Doncaster Dome Leisure Centre, Kingswood Golf Centre and Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre.
