  • Been living in Derby 7 years and have only just been into the Museum, it's stunning, well worth a visit from young to old. Always light a candle or 2 for family who have passed, I find it very calming...  read more »
  • The Cathedral is a light and airy neoclassical building. We found the welcomers very friendly and there is a children's quiz available. The highlight of the building is the tomb of Bess of Hardwick, who built Hardwick Ball and Chatsworth House.
  • One reviewer wrote about being able to see kestrels. Of course, they meant the world's fastest living thing - the Peregrine Falcon. Yes, this bird has nested since 2006 on a special platform on the east side of the tower (visible from Full Street/Cathedral Green), but birds remain around Derby Cathedral all year round. Google 'Derby Peregrines' to find the four webcameras. One of them lets you hear the bells ringing too!
  • It's a cathedral - what more do you want? Lovely part of Derby and they have a nesting kestrel.
  • Bizarrely my school used Derby Cathedral as a venue to perform a play, so I can't review it in a religious capacity. But I can say that it is a stunningly beautiful building in a very lovely part of Derby city centre. Fans of gothic architecture and ghosts (apparently the apparition of a nun haunts the grounds...) should really give this place a visit.
  • Wonderful interior with wrought iron railings and gorgeous religious artifacts. Great place to reflect in the middle of a busy city.
