Whilst not huge (as cathedrals go) this is an interesting place with several interesting aspects, including the stained glass windows.

I have been here 4 times once for my Daughters friends Wedding Plus My Daughter and I were both confirmed here and have been twice more for other members of my Church for Confirmations.

Large but somehow intimate for a cathedral. Very helpful staff, whether you go for a service or a tour.

Although small,our cathedral is probably the most notable building in the city. Architecturally magnificent, acoustically sublime, anyone spending time in Derby will be well served if looking for spiritual, historic, musical or aesthetic reasons. Do visit, you'll not be disappointed! There's also a delightful café opposite run by the cathedral.

Have attended many services and concerts here over the past 50 years. Have also sung in concerts here. The latest service I attended was 2 weeks ago - a funeral service. I was appalled by the sound system which rendered inaudible all the addresses. Many friends said they experienced the same problem. I talked to some of the cathedral staff... More

Very nice chatedral. It is worth while in Derby to go and see this pretty well built chatedral. Very nice from outside and more beautiful from the inside. Worth to visit.

Bongo Fury was part of the Friday night twilight concerts, but there was much more to it than Bongos and not much fury from the audience.... The cathedral was an amazing space for this eclectic mix of marimba, glockenspiel, drum and rhythm, performed by to passionate artists. O duo entertained and informed us, playing a wide mix of arranged and... More

I'm an card carrying atheist but I love nothing more than spending the afternoon admiring the architecture and artwork of amazing Cathedrals and Churches. Derby Cathedral has some great features and lots to see, I'd highly recommend an hour or so wonder around this great building.

A really lovely cathedral in the city centre of derby, the staff are always very friendly and welcoming. Doing the tower climb the staff were very knowledgable about the history of the cathedral and derby in general.
