Things to do in Derby

As the UK’s most central city, Derby’s events calendar is positively buzzing and there are plenty of things to do for people of all ages.

Once voted ‘Britain’s Best City Location’, Derby’s Cathedral Quarter is home to a wide array of independent shops and boutiques, as well as a number of quaint cafés and award-winning restaurants specialising in food from around the globe.

Derby’s city centre is home to the large Intu shopping centre which boasts a multitude of stores, a multiplex cinema and a well-stocked food court offering a wide choice of places to eat.

As for having a wee tipple after work or at the weekend, head to the Friar Gate area and you will find an excellent choice of bars, restaurants and clubs full of friendly locals.

Conveniently Located

Given its close proximity to the M1 – which passes about 10 miles to the east of the city – and the M42 to the south, rush-hour traffic is eased somewhat by the Park and Ride schemes that operate from the Meteor Centre and Pride Park.

There are also excellent road links, such as the A38, A52, A61, A6 and A50, making Derby an ideal location for commuting.>/p>

What’s more, East Midlands Airport is just a short 20 minute drive away.

Great Public Transport Services

Thanks to Derby’s significant history as a major centre for the rail industry, it goes without saying that the city is well-served by its rail network – operated by East Midlands Trains (for the surrounding areas) and Cross Country.

Local bus services in and around Derby are run by a number of companies, but principally Trent Barton and Arriva Midlands.
