An historic market town situated at the southern edge of Yorkshire, Doncaster is renowned for its horse racing, rich railway heritage, and its wealth of Georgian and Regency architecture. Doncaster sits at the very heart of its borough and has more than enough to entertain the casual visitor. Huge crowds turned out to support the Tour de Yorkshire when stages finished here in 2016 and 2018, and they will be on hand again in support of the rainbow jersey.
