Doncaster’s Wool Market

Open Tuesday-Sunday

Opening Hours:

Tue – Wed: 9pm-5pm

Thu – Sat: 9pm-9pm

Sun: 10am-4pm

Yes we are very much still on the Wool Market hype and any opportunity we have to shout about it, we will! If you were down for the opening weekend celebrations last week, you will have seen just how brilliant the new market is! If you weren’t able to get down, don’t worry there is always this weekend. It will be just as amazing as it was last week with the great eateries, shops and plenty of live entertainment over the weekend! It is late night opening on Saturday too so you will have all the time in the world to explore the market before it closes at 9pm!

We hope you take up some of our suggestion and love it! If you do, be sure to tag us in your posts @VisitDoncaster. You can also use #DoncasterisGreat and when you are in the Town Centre we encourage you to also use #YourDN1.
