“Tomb of Bess of Hardwick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Derby Cathedral is very small and has a personal style it kind of wraps you in a warm hug unlike larger Cathedral that just leave you awe struck. For a good view of Derby if you have the stamina climb the tower falcons permitting. We have a nesting family of them its a bit like bird watch on the telly only better. They have camera's so visitors can see without disturbing the family. Bess of Hardwick is buried here and if you have time visit Hardwick Hall near Chesterfield where she lived wonderful place.

“Beautiful awe inspiring building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

A really breathtaking building, with lots to see and learn. The staff - mainly volunteers I think, were really passionate about the cathedral and wanted to share their knowledge with me and the group of school children I had taken to visit.

In the heart of Dervy, a wonderful, light filled building with plenty to see. It felt lived in and loved.
