Visit Bawtry is a retail organisation created by business owners in the town of Bawtry.
Located on the South Yorkshire border the picturesque market town is centred around its main street, Market Hill, a nod to its history when it was a thriving market town. It was also known for being a stop on the major stagecoach route with evidence of its posting houses still in apparent today.
Today the town offers a range of independent retailers and businesses which work together through Visit Bawtry to promote the town as a visitor attraction to the wider community.
Established in 2011 Visit Bawtry and its members host an annual Bawtry Fashion Week each spring time, an annual Visit Bawtry race day at the nearby Doncaster Racecourse, a Visit Bawtry polo cup and a glittering Christmas event which bring together retailers, businesses and visitors to enjoy extra experiences in the town.
Retail wise there is everything from butchers, bakers and whilst no candle stick makers, there are plenty of gift and interior shops that sell candles and candle sticks! Designer clothing boutiques offer a delightful range offering some of the most desirable brands for ladies & gents.
And for foodies there is a wonderful range of places to eat from delicious breakfast and brunch, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. With Italian, Indian, Chinese and many other fantastic places to choose from there is much on offer, no matter what the time of day or night and no matter what your taste.
A vibrant social scene sees friends gathering for breakfast, working and social lunches, dinner dates with friends and loved ones, and delightful family Sunday lunches.
Offering a strong sense of community for its residents Visit Bawtry emulates this spirit making it a warm, friendly and welcoming place.
Whether you visit for an hour or two, or perhaps plan on making a weekend of it with a stay at the four star Crown Hotel situated in the heart of the town, you can be assured of a warm welcome. And with lots of other attractions on the doorstep such as the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and Doncaster Racecourse to name just a couple, Visit Bawtry is a destination waiting to be discovered.
