Doncaster is a large market town in South Yorkshire, England and has a population of around 111,000. Doncaster emerged as an industrial centre in the late 18th century to 20th century. Its communication links, particularly its waterways, meant that Doncaster became extremely busy and experienced vast migration to its centre. The town has a number of major distribution centres, including the 420 acre Doncaster International Railport, which dispatches goods to Europe by rail. Large warehousing and logistic capabilities for retailers such as Next, Tesco, IKEA, Amazon.com, Lidl and Faberge are also sited there. The B&Q distribution centre next to the DFS UK headquarters at Redhouse A1(M) junction 38 was the largest free-standing warehouse in the UK. The Silver Street, Cleveland Street and High Street areas have over 40 bars and clubs within a 2–3-minute walk of each other and other bars can be found on Priory Walk, Lazarus Court, Bradford Row and around the Market Place. Several restaurants serving food from around the world can also be found in the town centre, especially in the Netherhall and Copley Road areas. Speedway racing was staged at Doncaster Greyhound Stadium in 1969 and 1970.
