Castle Donington

Castle Donington

We love the village feel

Within easy commuting distance of Derby, Nottingham and Leicester, Castle Donington offers all the shopping, sport and culture of the big city, while enjoying all the history and charm of a small town.Many independent shops and café’s line the main street and there’s a Farmer’s Market on the second Saturday of every month, great for sourcing local produce before spending the afternoon baking or cooking with the family! There’s even an annual May Bank Holiday Medieval Market that takes place in Borough Street and includes local stalls selling various goods accompanied by dancing and music.

Nearby Donington Park was the original venue for the Monsters of Rock festivals through the 1980s and 1990s, and is now the home of the annual Download Festival. It also hosted a The European Grand Prix in April 1993 and the circuit also hosts the Donington Grand Prix Collection, the world’s largest collection of Formula One and Grand Prix vehicles. We love a bit of history about the area here at Mr and Mrs Clarke!
