Explore Doncaster's History
While the origins of Doncaster date back to around Roman times, much of the town's history is centred around the medieval era. Without doubt the major medieval attraction in the area is Conisbrough Castle. The partially restored 12th-century castle gives visitors a fascinating insight into life in the area almost 1,000 year ago. Packed with convenient facilities, a trip to the castle makes an excellent family day out.
