UK travel information

An industrial and manufacturing centre, Derby shows its picturesque side with many parks, and two rivers. It boasts a world-class arboretum, and a diverse collection of wildlife to give the tourist a real glimpse of the countryside within an urban environment.

The industrial past is commemorated in the Derby Industrial Museum, covering the city’s many technological achievements, and mapping the past of local firms such as Rolls Royce. Railways, mines, and the mysterious Derby Gaol Dungeon form an important part of the heritage which awaits the curious visitor.

 

Derby hotels



The Art Gallery houses a fantastic collection of works, and the Pickford’s Museum commemorates life in Georgian times, Royal Crown Derby offers a factory tour and a museum charting the history of the world famous china, with a restaurant for relaxation afterwards. The especial attraction of Derby cathedral is the peregrine falcons which have nested in the tower in recent years, but the building is also worth a visit for its bells and some excellent brasses.

The tower dates from Henry VIII, though the rest of the cathedral is from the 1700s. Proximity to the Peak District also attracts visitors to the city, and it forms an excellent base for touring that region.
