Doncaster Walks updated

Doncaster Minster

The Doncaster walks database of casual rambles has been updated, making South Yorkshire full to the brim of fun walk opportunities. We’ve got a wide variety of shorter walks ranging from as little as half a mile, up to 6-ish miles (10km).

Doncaster has a place in history as the site of the oldest classic horse race in the world, birthplace of historic steam engines (the Mallard and the Flying Scotsman) and home of two norman castles.

If you want exercise, there are easily manageable walks around the various districts of Doncaster to get your tastebuds going. These includes walks on paved roads, round parks or skirting woods and lakes and are just as good for walking your dog or walking with your family. Most, if not all, are easily accessible for push chairs and wheelchairs so why not make it a family occasion?

There are some excellent waterside walks in Doncaster, including a trail along the River Don by Sprotbrough Flash nature reserve which we’ve completed (watch this space for photos) and we can verify that this route includes an excellent riverside pub!

We’ve even included some countryside walks past local and historic landmarks if you want to get your boots muddy.

Check out the Doncaster walk options here, and feel free to send any pictures of rambles you’ve done in South Yorkshire to and we’ll put them up in our Ramble Vault!
