If youre looking for things to do in Doncaster once lockdown has lifted, then a day at the races offers an unforgettable experience. This years prestigious St Leger Festival has been re-imagined with some great new experiences to be had alongside the top-class racing.
Taking place over four-days, the famous Doncaster St Leger festival features the final Classic of the revered British Flat racing season - the Group 1 St Leger Stakes. Saturdays St Leger Day is one of the must-attend UK horse racing fixtures of the year.

This is THE pinnacle of Doncaster events to attend in 2021. The City flocks to experience all the drama and showmanship youd expect from an event of this calibre and Doncasters streets are lined with flags and a festival-feel throughout the four-day St Leger Festival.
But its not only the proud people of Yorkshire that wont want to miss any of the action the eyes of the world will be on Doncaster Racecourse for this epic moment in the British Flat horse racing season.

Boasting a glittering roll of honour, which is littered with some of the most acclaimed horses in history, the race is the final leg of the esteemed British Triple Crown. Comprising of three British Classic races the Newmarket 2000 Guineas, Epsom Derby and, finally, the St Leger, winning all three Group 1 horse racing fixtures is considered the greatest achievement in Thoroughbred horse racing and was last achieved by Nijinsky in 1970.
Alongside the St Leger Stakes, the final day of the St Leger festival also features top-class horse races including the Champagne Stakes and the fast and furious, ultra-competitive sprint - the Portland Handicap.
