We visited the cathedral as part of a days sightseeing in Derby. Good The area around it is lovely and very interesting - a good mixture of old and modern.

Derby Cathedral is such a beautiful building, it's a must see when in Derby. The cathedral is steeped in history from the 14th century. It really is such a beautiful building, inside and out.

This building has lots of history waiting to be discovered and I was the only one in the building at the time. Lots of amazing plaques on the wall and leaflets to read. This feels a very holy place and is free entry.

I contacted the cathedral as some friends wanted a tour of the cathedral, no problems, we were given a personal tour, no cost, just a donation if we felt it deserved it - it certainly did,

A lovely cathedral on the northern edge of the City centre. The cathedral is well maintained and contains a number of fine features. Certainly worth a visit.
