Derby Cathedral is fairly modern and quite austere. Looks like it was set out in Victorian times with plaques to Florence Nightingale on the walls. Interesting artefact about Derbyshire and the Sherwood Foresters regiment. Not particularly inspiring. One interesting facts that it's Cost circa £1750...More

I enjoy stoping in the cathedral for a few minutes of reflection. On occasion I am treated by the choir. Stop in for a few minutes. It won't be time waisted.

This is a relatively small and modern cathedral but there is still lots to see, especially the last resting place of Bess of Hardwick

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.
