Things to do in Thorne

Walk around the historic centre and admire centuries-old landmarks like St. Nicholas Church. The heritage-listed church dates back to the 12th century and features beautiful stained glass windows and ornate stonework. Visit Peel Hill Motte in the heart of the town centre to explore the grass-covered ruins of a Norman castle.

Discover the natural beauty of South Yorkshire in Thorne Moors, a vast expanse of peat bogs and wetlands. Well-maintained trails wind through the moors and showcase unique flora and fauna. The birdwatching is fantastic, with the chance to spot dozens of species.
