Getting around

Travelling to visit Doncaster’s fabulous attractions is easy: on foot, cycling, travelling in your own car or using public transport.

How ever you choose to get around, you're never far away from a new experience!

On foot

You see so much more when you slow down and explore on foot. There are miles and miles of quiet lanes, by-ways and footpaths. They take you through an interconnecting patchwork of fields, woods, moors, wetlands and nature reserves between the towns, villages and attractions.

Walking is great way to explore the area, discover new places and connect with others. The added advantage of travelling by foot is that walking has so many health benefits for your mind and body.

There’s an abundance of walking routes to choose from, suitable for all ages and abilities.

By taxi

Taxi ranks are located outside Doncaster Railway Station and Doncaster Sheffield Airport. In the city centre there are taxi ranks including St. Sepulchre Gate, High Street, Market Place, Leger Way (outside the Doncaster Racecourse, used on race days only) and East Laithe Gate.

By train

In addition to the central train station at Doncaster interchange, there are local train stations at Adwick, Bentley, Conisborough, Hatfield & Stainforth, Kirk Sandal, Mexborough, Thorne Nourth and Thorne South. These stations provide convenient access to the towns, villages and attractions on the outskirts of Doncaster.

By bus

Doncaster has a great local bus service to help you make the most of your leisure time. Travelling by bus is a hassle-free way to visit some of Doncaster’s unique and exciting attractions.

On race days, there is a shuttle service that runs between the racecourse and Doncaster interchange and the airport is a convenient 25-minute bus ride from the Frenchgate interchange in the city centre.
