History 1st thanks to wiki.... Doncaster is the site of a Roman fort which was built in the 1st century AD at the site of a crossing across the River Don. The Roman empirical command of Ninius called this fort "Caer Daun". Later the commands of Antoninus Pius and Notitia called this fort Danum, from which the town derives the Don part of its name; caster a Saxon word corrupted from the Latin original Castra, meaning a military camp.

Doncaster, my home town and the place I have lived in all my life, is a thriving and progressive town that is on the verge of earning its long term goal of becoming a city. Since missing out to Preston the last time round, Doncaster has improved beyond recognition and now offers something for everyone, apart from a beach of course. The football club, Doncaster Rovers, have been putting the town on the map in recent years having beaten the once mighty Leeds United in the Legue 1 play off final and, only last week, drawing with Aston Villa in the FA Cup. The team's impressive new stadium is one of the first things you see when enetering the town from the M18 ... Read the complete review

Doncaster is a market town, about 15 minutes drive from the city of Sheffield in South Yorkshire. I'm going to summarise what I think of Doncaster below Day Shopping Not bad, but obviously not the choice you would find in a bigger place. For those of you from a city, there's no department stores of any note (Binns is the best of a poor bunch) and specialist stores are sadly lacking.

Don't come to Doncaster just to shop! try Meadowhall nearby Amenities The town boasts one ... Read the complete review

Doncaster has a prison the locals call Doncatraz. Doncaster is the teenage pregnancy capital of England. Doncaster has a bunch of plastic trees outside the town hall. Interesting facts! So what does 'Donny' as the locals call it, have to offer anyone determined enough to visit South Yorkshire? Doncaster is a large town in South Yorkshire, a heavy industry county based on iron, steel, mining, generally in decline. It has been semi-renovated, with reasonable pedestrianization, although the impression of the town is still dirty. In the town centre itself is an outdoor market, famous for fish, but including a lot of bric-a-brac. There ... Read the complete review
