The Cathedral Quarter

About

Dynamic yet compact, Derby is the ideal destination for a taste of friendly and cosmopolitan city life.

With everything from designer and mainstream shopping and mouth-watering international cuisine to live entertainment and real ale pubs, it's a great place for a city break.

Shop till you drop at the prestigious Intu Derby, packed with more than 150 stores - including High Street favourites and designer and independent brands. Or head for the chic Cathedral Quarter to browse in designer boutiques and exclusive shops.

Sample the world on a plate at everything from award-winning restaurants to bijou tea rooms and cafés. If you have a taste for real ale, slake your thirst at more than 120 real ale pubs, three microbreweries and two annual CAMRA beer festivals.

See live entertainment ranging from music and comedy to musicals and drama at the Assembly Rooms, Guildhall Theatre and Derby Theatre, or for contemporary visual arts, film and media, head for cutting edge Derby QUAD. Watch the latest films at three cinema complexes, including Westfield Derby's plush Cinema de Lux.

Experience the excitement of live football or take a tour at the impressive Pride Park Stadium, home of Derby County Football Club, or scare yourself silly on one of Derby's famous ghost walks, created by Most Haunted's Richard Felix.

If you're keen on culture, Derby Cathedral is worth a look. Boasting a long association with the Dukes of Devonshire, it includes a magnificent monument to Bess of Hardwick, and is now the unlikely home of a family of peregrine falcons!

Nearby Derby Museum and Art Gallery houses the largest collection of paintings by the city's 18th century landscape and portrait master Joseph Wright, while a short distance from the city centre you can pay a visit to Royal Crown Derby, renowned for its luxury fine bone china, manufactured solely in England.
