Doncaster the place to be in 2023!

Visitor Guide helps you explore one of the UK's newest cities.

Doncaster has launched it’s very first Visitor Guide since being recognised as a city as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Civic Honours.

King Charles III conferred the status in late 2022 and the significant milestone has marked the dawn of an exciting period for the city.

The royal visit was witnessed by thousands of eager visitors and locals to the iconic Mansion House, all of whom can take inspiration from the new guide which is packed full of information about all the great things to do in Doncaster, as well as what’s new for 2023.

Whether you are looking for the perfect place to eat, a day of family fun or accommodation for the night, the guide, produced by Doncaster Council’s Tourism team, Visit Doncaster, contains useful details about all of this and so much more.

It is a great resource and arrangement planner for anyone preparing to visit the city, or for residents wanting to explore more of what’s on their doorstep.

Speaking at Doncaster Knights’ state-of-the-art Castle Park venue, Deputy Mayor Cllr Glyn Jones, cabinet member for Business, said: “It was a privilege to welcome his majesty to Doncaster and officially declare us a city. We have long felt that we were already a city owing to the quantity and quality of events on offer to locals and visitors.

“We have included a month-by-month events guide so people can be a part of the experiences, many of which are affordable in austere times. And we have a keen focus on the family friendly top 10 ‘bucket list’ places to tick off for parents wishing to keep the kids entertained.

“We also want people to support the ever-improving food and drink scene that the city has to offer which will help support local businesses and the local economy.”

Locals and visitors can pick up a copy of the guide from the Tourist Information Centre and they will also become available in various venues across Doncaster and beyond very soon. If people can’t wait to get their hands on a guide, it can also be downloaded from
