Family Fun

Whether you are young or young at heart, you don’t have to travel far in Doncaster to find fun adventures that all the family will enjoy.

If you fancy an outdoor action adventure, then a visit to the Bawtry Paintball Fields is a must. Not only can you do paintballing, but they also offer activities such as laser combat, archery and tomahawk throwing to name a few. They have also added a new Tree Trek and Zip Park to their list of activities. For the summer months, a trip to Sunnybank Gardens comes highly recommended on TripAdvisor. Walk around the beautiful gardens, have a family crazy golf competition and then cool down with delicious locally made farm ice cream.

For those of you with younger children to keep entertained, Boston Park Farm is a guaranteed hit. Children can get up close with a range of farm animals and even pet and feed them. Throughout July to October, you can also have hours of fun in the Maize Maze. Can you find your way out?

One of Doncaster’s favourite family attractions is the Doncaster Dome, one of the region’s premier sports, leisure and entertainment destinations, with over 50 activities taking place under one roof. The family can make a splash in the Lagoons, a magical 7-pool water adventure, or cut the ice in the UK’s only split level ice rink, or book onto a session on the brand new cycle track.

The South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum is an exciting day out for families and enthusiasts alike. The Museum exhibits a collection of aircraft from the first airshow in Britain at Doncaster Racecourse in 1909, to modern fast jets and civil light aircraft. There’s a whole host of familiar favourites, cockpits and interactive exhibits. It’s open all year round and there really is something for everyone.

The Trans Pennine Trail is a great option for families that love the great outdoors. It is an exciting and scenic route for walkers and cyclists. Experience the beautiful rivers, canals and history that lies along the trail. Of course, no visit to Doncaster would be complete without a trip to the UK’s No.1 walk-through wildlife adventure, Yorkshire Wildlife Park. The park is home to some of the most amazing animals on the planet, from the only polar bears in England to majestic lions, tigers, black rhino, giraffe, Red Pandas and so much more.
