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.

Lovely Cathedral with loads of history attached. On our visit school children were rehearsing for a Carol Concert and the atmosphere was lovely. The Guide on duty gave us a one to one tour which was most informative.

If your visiting Derby England the town offers a lot, good shops, good places to eat and have a drink, good architecture especially the cathedral in the town centre (you can' miss it), very central to the whole of England as well.
