Go into Derby Cathedral to find the monument of Bess of Hardwick. Also the last resting place of Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire and her husband (and his mistress)!!

A lovely, bright interior with interesting recent stained glass and memorials to Bess of Hardwick and Florence Nightingale. Good quarter of Derby to explore too.

Its another lovely church in the city. Normally if I'm in a city and have time I'll pop into the local church to take a look at the history and the building. Worth a visit if you have time in the city.

Whilst staying in Derby for long weekend recently with my wife, we visited Derby Cathedral which although is smaller than most we've previously visited it was however beautiful and peaceful inside with lots of interesting artefacts.

Possibly the smallest cathedral I have visited but it has an interesting interior. Easy access for wheelchairs and restaurants are local. Public car parking only.

If you are into bird watching you can always stand outside and watch the Peregrine Falcons. It is not unusual to see a group of intrepid twitchers standing on Cathedral Green staring skywards on the lookout for these majestic birds. There again if you can't be bothered to get out of bed, you can always use the webcam to be... More

Although a nurse for almost thirty years I never realized that the Lady of the Lamp was born in the area of Derby. That is until our visit to the Derby Cathedral where there is a wall plaque of Florence Nightingale, it was with a feeling of pride that took a photo of the founder of my profession. The magnificent... More
