Discovering Derby, pathway to the Peaks

Derby holds great appeal to visitors in search of unspoilt tradition and character. A multi-cultural city bursting with a wealth of entertainment venues, attractions, shopping experiences and open green spaces in one of Derby's many parks. The city offers the perfect combination of attractions for anyone looking for a short break destination or unique event venue.

The compact city centre makes exploring Derby's three museums easy, and you can also visit Royal Crown Derby, the city's oldest factory and Derby Cathedral, which boasts the second highest church tower in England.

Derby has an excellent choice of pubs, restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops as well as ghost walks, which are conducted on a regular basis. With a greater number of ghostly sightings than York, Derby is officially the country's spookiest city! While the many theatres and venues offer the best in musicals, contemporary and classic dramas, comedy and children's entertainment.

A ten minute drive from the city by car or public transport takes you into the Peak District. Discover the inspiring landscapes that are perfect for strolling, hiking, cycling or riding. Visit a wealth of historic houses, wander around traditional bustling towns and pretty villages and go back in time to remember our great industrial heritage.
