The Corn Exchange
The jewel in Doncaster Market’s crown.
In the 19th century a Corn Exchange was built at the heart of the market area. It was designed to be a concert hall as well as a market building and Elgar conducted the London Symphony Orchestra here in 1909. A young Winston Churchill also spoke here about his experiences during the Boer War.
Nowadays, this fine Victorian listed gem now houses a wider range of quality retailers including household linens, fashion, furnishing and much more.
Upstairs (lift available) is a dedicated craft area with regular classes in card making and other activities. The Forum is where arts and crafts traders produce goods while you wait and there is an attractive balcony tearoom overlooking the building's decorative splendour.
The building is also home to the markets Information Point for visitors, as well as an unsupervised play area for children.
Normal market days are Tuesday and Friday, 9am - 4pm and Saturday, 9am - 4.30pm.
The antique and bric-a-brac market is only open on a Wednesday, 8am - 2:pm
