Originally mentioned in the Domesday Book, Barnsley’s historic roots are easily spotted with castles and heritage centres cataloguing the South Yorkshire town’s place in history.
This will be the very first time the Tour de Yorkshire has visited the town, although the second stage of the Tour de France did pass through in 2014.
The Tour de Yorkshire would not be possible without the support of our fantastic partners.
