Lovely!

This is a lovely place to visit - we have been before, but for a classical concert, so were unable to see it in all its splendour. Well worth a visit if you`re in the area... read more

This is a lovely place to visit - we have been before, but for a classical concert, so were unable to see it in all its splendour. Well worth a visit if you`re in the area - volunteers are friendly and informative. Will be back.

Quite different from many cathedrals, having been added to over the years. A bright Georgian feel. Tours available in the afternoon

A very historic cathedral, that is also beautifully looked after. The volunteer staff are very friendly and able to talk a lot about the details inside. Well worth the visit

Beautiful cathedral in a busy city.Of particular interest were the mainly plain glass windows which let in so much light leading to a bright and beautiful atmosphere.Several memorial tablets and connections to the family at Chatsworth and mary Queen of Scots..Also wartime memorial plcks of interest

We visited the cathedral on Wednesday morning 3rd February apart from a wonderfully peaceful place to visit the welcome we received from two very friendly and helpful gentlemen made our visit very special! The knowledge and warmth shown by them will make our visit one we will remember for many years to come!

Unusual cathedral, no stained glass but lovely arched ceiling and ornate gates. Attended a concert here and the acoustics were great. Facilities are good - it even has toilets!

Centrally located, this cathedral is in excellent condition. It has an interesting pair of modern stained- glass windows and intricate furnishings. I don't usually visit the inside of cathedrals and churches but this was centrally located and seemed a manageable size. Well worth a visit

Pop in here when I'm in Derby and wander round admiring the decoration, metalwork, carved statues, stained glass windows and tiled floors...always something to catch my eye and hold my attention. This is a smallish and friendly cathedral and its modesty makes it more approachable than some of its showier sisters. Always light a candle and feel the loving peace... More

A great building with loads of light, great music and helpful guides. Really good to see it so busy. It's not too big and easy to walk round - well worth a visit!

Went into this Cathedral expecting the normal interior but was quite surprised it was more like a town hall than a church. It dod not seam right but it was different, worth a visit.
