The main purpose of this visit was to view Bess of Hardwicks Tomb, the interior of the Cathedral is very nice and well looked after and the staff were helpful with any info we wanted regarding history etc. We ended the visit with a short walk around the town centre.
Derby Cathedral is quite a small church, and very different from most medieval churches. Instead of the dark, enclosed feeling of the old church, it is full of light and open spaces. The tower is older, mid 15 hundreds but the nave is Georgian and spacious and the two modern stained glass windows give a dramatic light. It is beautifully... 更多
I visited the cathedral on a visit to Derby and I had no idea what a treat was awaiting me. It has the wow factor from the start. Stunningly beautiful and with so much history.

We visited here as part of our aim to visit all UK cathedrals it was different but interesting. As it was Easter Saturday people were busy doing flowers but we were still welcomed in a friendly way we were dissapointed that we were too early for the tower tour. It has a nice atmosphere and appears well cared.
1 of the most beautiful churches in the midlands and being in the centre of town is easily accessible it is open most days for visiting and well worth a visit if visiting Derby
Staff were very helpful explaining a lot of the backstory to the Cathedral's history. Very well kept and preserved with some really interesting elements on display, as well as beautiful sights to behold throughout the whole experience.
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.
