Doncaster Markets: Winner of Britain's Best Market Award!
I walked through the Doncaster Markets, which won a award for Britain's Best Market Award, whilst exploring the town centre. There are over 400 outlets in the forms of shops, stalls and stands which those make up the markets. The markets go back to the Roman times when Doncaster was formed as a settlement. The town received its Royal Charter by Richard the Lionheart and in 1248 another charter established the market on its current site.
On a future visit I'd like to have a look inside the markets to get a flavour of how special Doncaster markets are. There are also numerous cafes in the markets alongside a dedicated coach pick up point.
What to buy: A wide range of items from food to antiques!
What to pay: Varies from stall to stall.
Doncaster race course: Car Boot sales
Get up early on a Sunday morning if you want to get a bargain.
What to buy: There are good things and there are cheap things, but you will have to work hard to find good cheap things.
