The Quaint Town of Derby

The East Midlands city of Derby sits slightly off the UK’s regular tourist trail – but its quiet charm only serves to enhance its appeal.

It’s a relaxed, unhurried place, particularly in the Cathedral Quarter, where independent shops, lush green spaces and fine eateries combine to great effect. Of course, there’s the cathedral itself to discover too – a stunning feat of architecture with a tower dating back to the 16th century. Visit the grade II listed Derby Market Hall too, famed for its magnificent ironwork roof.
