Living in Doncaster

Sports central

Doncaster is known for its sports enthusiasts. So, if you want to live an active lifestyle or enjoy watching a game on the weekends, this is the perfect place for your next home. For one, the city’s racecourse holds The St Leger - one of the biggest racing events of the year. You can spend a day sipping champagne at the races and make the most of the sunny - or autumnal - weather. But if horse racing isn’t your thing, there’s plenty more on offer. The city has a strong football community, with the Doncaster Rovers having a loyal fan base for over 140 years.

You can also step away from urban life and immerse yourself in the surrounding countryside, or visit the Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre for watersports, climbing and even axe throwing. Staying fit and active is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and that’s easy to do if you buy a home in this sporty city.


If you’re after a slightly quieter life but still want to get out and about, Doncaster’s markets are known throughout Northern England and beyond. Running since Roman times, the market has over 400 traditional stalls and shops, including a traditional wool market, delicious local produce, unique crafts and secondhand goods. There’s also a mix of independent and well-known brands dotted throughout, with Frenchgate Shopping Centre and Lakeside Village Outlet housing a range of shops.

And if that wasn’t enough, there are a handful of market towns situated near Doncaster, such as Bawtry and Tickhill, each coming with its own unique charm and character. Buying a home here means no more scrambling about shopping for Christmas presents or having to jump in the car to stock up on groceries - you’ll have everything you need on your front step.
