Things to see and do

Doncaster is very well located from our main feeder University of Sheffield, it is actually only 25 miles in distance and due to motorway links is actually quicker to get to by car than travelling across Sheffield in the rush hour!

For sports fanatics Doncaster has a leading racecourse, famous for holding the St Ledger race in September, with meets throughout the year. We also have both a 1st Division Football team and Championship Rugby Union team and a Rugby League team. There are numerous gyms and sports facilities as well as an Ice skating rink and ten pin bowling alley and lakes for boating, canoeing and jetskiing.
