Why Visit Derby by Rail?

Situated at the south-eastern edge of the hills of the county of Derbyshire, Derby is one of the most energetic and creative cities in the UK. The city may have suffered from the consequences of the industrial decline that took place in the eighties, but it has since bounced back, thanks to its remarkable cultural developments and a renewed riverfront.

Derby railway station is on the Midland main line, with regular trains coming from London St. Pancras and Sheffield. Derby’s railway station is about a five minute walk from both the city centre and the local bus station.

Derby is fairly compact, which makes it easy for pedestrians to navigate. You can start at the Derby Market Hall, a historic market that houses an eclectic mix of bustling contemporary and traditional stalls. The building was completed in 1866 and features impressive Victorian architecture with magnificent ironwork. From the market hall, you can head to the Derby Arboretum, known for being England’s first public park. This picturesque park is located just south of the city centre and features a fine collection of trees.

Derby is also home to a number of museums. The Silk Mill, formerly known as the Derby Industrial Museum, was Britain’s first factory and is part of the Derwent Valley Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another museum, the Derby Museum and Art Gallery, features an outstanding collection of porcelain products that have been manufactured in Derby since 1750.

The Pickford’s House Museum, which features recreated Georgian rooms, is also worth visiting. From here, you can go to the Derby Cathedral. Although this church may not be the most spectacular of all of the English Cathedrals, it’s known for its impressive 16th-century tower that you can climb for an eagle-eye view of the city. Another church that’s well worth a visit is the St. Mary’s Chapel in Bridge Gate. This 14th-century bridge chapel is among the oldest surviving buildings in the city.
