1. Walkers Nuseries
Take a trip to Walkers Nurseries in Mosham Road, Blaxton, for all your shrubs, flowers, bedding plants, grasses, foliage, pines. And they've been a pines and conifers specialist for over 60 years. But it's not just about gardening, there is a lovely cafe, gift shop and famikly activities to take part in too.
2. The Wool Market
The Wool Market underwent a major transformation and the new and much improved market opened its doors for business in 2019. It is a vibrant and trendy place for everyone to enjoy. It is the most diverse market of all the markets in Doncaster. You can even check out the medieval well that was discovered during the works and has now been preserved under a glass floor. With international eateries, handmade goods and so much more on offer it is the perfect spot to eat, drink and relax.
3. Brodsworth Hall
Catch a glimpse of Victorian life at this 'conserved as found' country estate. Brodsworth Hall was built and the pleasure gardens laid out in the 1860s as an up-to-date new home for the Thellusson family and their servants. It survived with remarkably few changes until taken on by English Heritage in 1990. The gardens have been restored and the faded and worn interiors gently conserved, telling the story of the changing fortunes of the people who lived and worked here. Roam the gorgeous grounds, discover the unique Rose garden recently restored to its Victorian splendour and stop for a tea in the pop-up outdoor café. Please note that dogs are unfortunately not allowed, as our gardens are listed and protected.
