Overview of Doncaster and Sheffield

overview of Doncaster

Rich in horse racing and railway heritage, but with all the contemporary fixtures of any modern British town, Doncaster is a surprising northern jewel, blessed with culture, shopping and nightlife.

Sheffield, another once industrious hub, lies south west of Doncaster. Journey time by car from Doncaster Sheffield Airport to Sheffield city centre is around 40 minutes. There you’ll find a city undergoing huge regeneration. Watch this space – Sheffield is very much on the up! It’s also home to music, sports and shopping scenes that draw in visitors from miles around. And on its doorstep is the spectacular Peak District National Park.

Whether you're travelling for business or leisure, fly to Doncaster with Flybe and you'll discover a warm Yorkshire welcome, and a stunning county with a whole lot to offer.



Things to see in South Yorkshire

The region’s industrial roots are evident wherever you go and the abundance of Georgian and Regency architecture is a nod to Doncaster and Sheffield’s glory days, when they were the beating heart of the South Yorkshire steel trade.

While its heritage is of great pride and importance, South Yorkshire is also a 21st Century playground where music, sport and culture come high on the agenda. Alongside some of the UK's best shopping, family attractions and nightlife, you’ll find some of the nation’s finest Gothic architecture, museums and Victorian monuments. Every generation is catered for in this region’s engaging mix of old and new.

If you're looking for something action-packed after your flight to Doncaster, the sporting attractions are endless. Don your finery and head to one of the best racecourses in Europe, Doncaster Racecourse. Or you might want to tee off at one of the many golf courses the region has to offer.

As for culture, South Yorkshire proudly displays its heritage in its museums, listed buildings and stately homes, all offering family-friendly activities. Chatsworth House, one of Britain's grandest country houses, is just a stone's throw from Sheffield and a must-see. Or find nature in the city in Sheffield’s Winter Garden, the largest urban glass house in Europe.


Restaurants and nightlife in Doncaster and Sheffield

Doncaster and Sheffield both offer a hearty range of eateries. Being in the heart of South Yorkshire, there's no shortage of traditional cosy pubs serving food - The Crown Inn in Doncaster and The Cadeby Inn in nearby Cadeby are local favourites.

Doncaster’s Georgian Tea Rooms serve a sumptuous afternoon tea. And for international flavours, head to La Fiesta for top notch tapas or Ashoka for amazing Indian cuisine.

If you’re a fan of Italian cuisine, you don’t get much more authentic than Sheffield’s Vero Gusto. Italian owned, they serve homemade Italian food, great coffee and home-baked Italian cakes and pastries in the afternoon. Bellissimo!

South Yorkshire prides itself on a varied and full nightlife that’s sure to impress. If you’re looking for a fun cocktail bar, head to the Rockahula Tiki Bar in Doncaster. Or if craft beer and independent bars are your thing, Sheffield won’t disappoint.
