Area Guide

Why should you choose Doncaster as a place to call home, or a place to do business?

We love Doncaster. It’s a town that’s going places and you’re joining us at just the right time.


Business development and investment is at an all-time high. The town has a thriving Chamber of Commerce, which drives much investment and promotes the town as a thriving business community encompassing everyone from sole traders to multi-national blue chips.
High profile and recognised businesses who have chosen Doncaster for their business operations include IKEA distribution centre, Next, B&Q, BT, Direct Line, Hitachi Rail, One Call Insurance, BMW, DFS, Wincanton, Webasto, Amazon and CEVA.
The i-port will only bring more investment to the town due to its accessibility and growing popularity as a place to do business.


Education is a major concern for families looking to move to or within the borough. Doncaster is home to some exceptional nursery, primary and secondary schools; the borough also benefits from a college with university affiliation, bespoke sixth form college, the National Racing College, College for High Speed Rail and a forthcoming UTC specialising in STEM subjects.


Doncaster Sheffield Airport continues to prosper and introduced long haul flights to its schedule in 2019, bringing visitors to the town from across Europe and beyond. It remains a hub for global cargo and will, in the future, have a rail port and rail station to support the logistics network, which Doncaster lies at the heart of.
The Yorkshire Wildlife Park, the UK’s only walk-through safari park, opens its extended operations in summer 2020 and will see it grow from its existing 70 acres to almost 150.
A new eco holiday park is also undergoing construction and set to bring more holiday visitors to the borough, a PGA-accredited golf course has also had planning permission granted.

Shopping and Socialising

The town centre has been undergoing road and pavement refurbishments to provide a modern, updated area for shopping and socialising. The development of the town’s historic Woolmarket has brought a new lease of life to the market area. It attracts visitors from near and far for its street food, retail and entertainment. < br/> The Frenchgate Centre and surrounding pedestrian areas bring a full complement of high street names to facilitate everyday life, and independent retailer shopping is also available. Other towns, such as Bawtry and Tickhill, pride themselves on offering only independent retailers, and there are many independent businesses ranging from furniture to ice cream makers, coffee shops to garden centres.
