A town steeped in history, through the Roman, medieval and Georgian eras, Doncaster has grown into a well-rounded place with a vibrant cultural scene, including its heritage as a local market town, its rich horse racing history and strong links to the Royal Air Force.
Culture in Doncaster
An open-minded art space near Elmfield Park, The Point is a contemporary art gallery that houses a rotating programme of exhibitions and displays spanning photography, paintings, drawings and more. A mix of Georgian architecture and modern facilities, the three-storey townhouse is located on South Parade, just around the corner from the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery. Alongside the constantly changing exhibits, there’s a popular café, as well as a host of meeting rooms and workshops which regularly host special events during the school holidays.
