A brilliant place to enjoy a circular walk with the kids….on the promise of a hot chocolate at the end from the cafe!
Please note closed over Christmas until the 28th December.
We recently did the blue route (not sure why we have never taken this route before, but it was great. They will give you a map on arrival. Lots to see including birds and mini beasts, plus we found some friendly goats, sheep and cows. We took a picnic and found benches to sit on. It’s all mainly paths that are suitable for pushchairs if you have them too. Took us a good few hours, stopping in a few bird hides along the way as we had the kids binoculars with us (we did parts of the shorter routes too and spread it out across several hours…walked around 8 miles).
Toilets available inside the visitor centre (remember your mask)
Parking is free. Entry payable in to Potteric Carr.

4 Smartphone Heritage Walks around Doncaster, DN1
There are 2 walks (Walk 1, From Roman Times to the 1300’s and Walk 2, Walk through time in Waterdale)
Enjoy 2 self guided walks created by Doncaster Civic Trust and admire the Christmas lights in Doncaster town centre as you go! I haven’t tried these, so if you go do let us know I’d love to know what they are like. They look very interactive with facts about each part of the town centre. A great way to explore.
