We went to the Cathedral Saturday morning, not too busy, welcomed as we entered by people working there, and especially one lady who was really helpful with information about its history. Have been in many Cathedrals and this one was perhaps the smallest, but well worth a look around. Loved the Silk Mill pub a short walk away.
This cathedral is worth a visit. It is an old building with a fairly modern interior and with two modern but stunning stained glass windows depicting darkness and light. It also has a tiny underground chapel for quiet contemplation.
Our group had a very interesting tour of the cathedral tower, bells and carillon, including the hour mechanisms striking and culminating with a fine view of the lights of Derby from the top of the tower. The guides were very helpful and informative about the history of the cathedral, with insights to many areas of this interesting building.
We went to see The Sixteen sing here. They were amazing. The venue was excellent with parking close by, cushions on the pews and generally a great atmosphere. We had a great night out and would go again.
The Cathedral of All Saints (known as Derby Cathedral) is one of the smallest in England, with Leicester and Birmingham cathedrals. Visiting is free of charge, naturally, and the church will be open to visitors during the day. Photography is also allowed, and free. The church is located at the heart of the so-called "cathedral district" - no surprises there... 更多
Whilst not huge (as cathedrals go) this is an interesting place with several interesting aspects, including the stained glass windows.

It is a beautiful building and makes it feel so special to be part of a service here. The date I have put was for a... 更多
Although small,our cathedral is probably the most notable building in the city. Architecturally magnificent, acoustically sublime, anyone spending time in Derby will be well served if looking for spiritual, historic, musical or aesthetic reasons. Do visit, you'll not be disappointed! There's also a delightful café opposite run by the cathedral.
