About Doncaster

Doncaster is a market town in South Yorkshire with a history dating back to the 1st century AD when it was founded by the Romans as a port.

Population growth slowed down during and after de-industrialisation but Doncaster remains one of the largest towns in Yorkshire and continues to take advantage of its strategic location to this day.
