Derby is one of the UK's most central cities, a great place for culture and a great base to explore nearby Peak District delights. A really friendly place, great value for money and very easy to get around, you'll feel welcome right from the start.
Derby forms the southern gateway to the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. Designed and made by the people and industries of Derby, the Museum of Making (opening 2021) is truly unique. Visitors walk through the iconic 18th century Bakewell Gates (part of the original structure of the Silk Mill) to be greeted by an impressive Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine hanging from the ceiling in the Civic Hall.
