We called in one afternoon, having never been in before, despite previously living in Derby for some time. It’s a treasure trove of local history and we had a very enjoyable visit.

Derby Cathedral was under rennovations when we visited but we were able to go inside and look around. It's a good cathedral, not the prettiest but it's a working cathedral and the heart of this city.

Although not one of the largest cathedrals to visit it is certainly beautiful. On entering it was so peaceful and wonderful to walk around. Well worth a visit.

Good place to visit and walk around. I was expecting something larger but still very interesting. Search out Bess of Hardwick memorial and other famous families. Plenty of information and people to help.

Was looking for a LARGE cathedral and took ages to find it !!! Better inside than the drab looking exterior. The city needs more signs added to their streets.

I am no stranger to Derby and whenever I can I like to take time to visit the Cathedral. There’s no admission charge, but I like to make a donation. There are memorials to many famous people, and for me the one I visit is...More

The Cathedral tower certainly suggests that one will be entering a Gothic structure, but what greets the eye is a curious Georgian ensemble (by Gibbs), which seems to make sense. A rather lovely Georgian baldacchino is set off by the memorial to Bess of Hardwick,...More

The lightness in the cathedral is quite unusual, but creates a lovely ambience. The stained glass windows are beautiful. A lot of history here . Lots of information boards and helpful volunteers.

There is no entrance fee but a donation box. i believe there is a charge if you want to do the tower, i couldn't do it at the time due to a service being conducted.

We found it, very inviting, and everyone could sit where ever they wanted, they even supplied tea/coffee and biscuits. The pillars where not a problem.

Hi. I'm a keen amauter photographer, and love taking photos. Lots of them. I have found that when you are in the UK you can take photos of most places, but no flash photos. I took a lot of photos in the Cathedral.
