I really don't believe people make a conscious decision to visit Derby's not really a cathedral. Compare it to York or Lincoln and it looks really, really unimpressive.

On our arrival in Derby we were far more impressed than we expected. A fantastic town center with loads of shops and side streets to explore. All around the town center there was some kind of activity going and later we had a pleasant stroll along the banks of the river Trent which runs through the town center. The museum... More

It has managed to retain the integrity of a place of worship, which it still is, It originates as a parish church gaining cathedral status in 1927. Many things to see, very well laid out internal lighting, peaceful and serene, well worth a... More

Small but well maintained Cathedral. Has small working locomotives inside the cathedral to commemorate Derby's past as a builder of steam and diesel trains, worth popping in whilst in Derby

Unlike other Cathedrals we have attempted to visit we had a lovely warm welcome in Derby. We only popped our heads round the door for a quick peek and received a very positive response despite the fact that they were all busy preparing for their Mother's Day service. A lovely Cathedral and lovely people

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. The cathedral is free to visit, which makes a nice change - I have to say, I believe all cathedrals should be free of charge. It is full and light... More
