Doncaster, England

Any British town with the “caster” suffix was once a Roman fortress so this applies to Doncaster.

The town lies on a large coal seam and this attracted industry starting in the 1700s, though there are many strings to Doncaster’s bow.

One of these is aviation, made clear at the Vulcan Experience, showcasing the Avro Vulcan, which was assembled in Doncaster, and the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, a trove of 20th-century helicopters and planes at a former RAF hangar.

If you’re around in late-summer two of England’s most valuable races on the flat are run at the historic Doncaster Racecourse; the St Leger Stakes and the Racing Post Trophy.
