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.

Very nice light space, friendly staff who I expect are volunteers. There was a choir and music rehearsal which was lovely to listen to. Interesting link to Bess of Hardwick and the Cavendish family and also Florence Nightingale. Don't expect an elaborate Cathedral but it...More

A cafe & bookshop opposite the cathedral. Very quiet today with the weather & threatened more snow. I had a pot of tea curried parsnip soup & crisps. It came with croutons & a decent slice of bread. I had a little trepidation about the...More

Built in the 1720s the former Church became a Cathedral in 1929. I was greeted by a couple who were volunteering and they both knew their history well as they've been attending Derby Cathedral for a long time and were attentive to guests and visitors...More

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.
