Derby cathedral is surrounded by history and quilst the exterior is very traditional the interior is finished in a modern way which does not detract from it's historical artefacts . Although I am not religious I happened to arrive just at evensong which was delightful.

I guess I've been spoilt being brought up on Canterbury Cathedral where my sister still works. Derby is a very different beast being very light and modern looking inside and primarily down to the fact they only have two stained-glass windows. It doesn't help that...More

Decided to have a wee quick look at Derby Cathedral, as I try and visit Churches when in a new city / town. I was also look for a little bit of quiet time to myself

There is no entrance fee but a donation box. i believe there is a charge if you want to do the tower, i couldn't do it at the time due to a service being conducted.

We found it, very inviting, and everyone could sit where ever they wanted, they even supplied tea/coffee and biscuits. The pillars where not a problem.
