Things to do in Mexborough, South Yorkshire


Mexborough is mentioned in the Doomsday Book, it featuring bustling little areas of activity set against a backdrop of historic features and interest. The River Don flows along the edges of Mexborough, past more modern features like the local Leisure Centre.

The town centre finds itself built upon natural slopes and, though the Motte and Bailey castle is long gone, it still retains much of its original ambience and architecture. Mexborough was traditionally a market town and this is still the case with shopping and tea rooms / coffee shops on offer in the pedestrianised centre.

Denaby Ings Nature Reserve is close by and offers a volunteering programme and breathtaking views as added extras. There's the chance to walk from Mexborough to Conisborough, then on to Sprotbrough, taking in further nature walks and reserves as you go.
