Derby Cathedral dates from the 18th century and boasts a stunning 64-metre tower and classical nave. The interior is medieval and houses the world-famous wrought iron screen, Bess of Hardwick's monument and much more.

Art lovers should visit the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. The museum houses a notable collection of fine porcelain, as well as paintings by the local artist Joseph Wright. There are changing exhibits throughout the year as well.

The Derby Industrial Museum is located on the site of the world's oldest factories, the Silk Mills, built by George Sorocold in 1702 and 1717. The foundations and parts of the tower from the 1717 mill are still visible. The museum showcases the industrial heritage of Derby, with special emphasis on the development of Rolls-Royce aero engines and the railway industry.

Derby is famous for its Royal Crown Derby, the lavishly decorated fine china and tableware. The Royal Crown Derby is the city's oldest factory and there is a museum tracing the history and heritage back to 1750. Factory tours are available, as well as shopping at the factory store, which offers good discounts.

The Derby Arboretum was England's first public park, donated to the people of Derby in 1840 by Joseph Strutt, a local mill owner. Its unique history has been awarded recognition in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens.

The Derby Heritage Centre is housed in an old Tudor grammar school. It offers events, themed walks such as City Centre Spooks, Hangman's Friar Gate, and Haunted Pub Crawls, plus exhibitions and tours. Enjoy some homemade cakes and refreshments at the Tudor Tea Room.
