Went on two occasions during the festival. The cathedral is modern and quite beautiful. Go next year and you will not be disappointed.

I visited with my husband in December to see G4 in concert. What a beautiful place, especially for a Christmas concert - the acoustics were amazing. The cathedral is truly stunning and the Christmas tree and lights were breathtaking. It was also great that volunteers were selling mince pies and mulled wine, which just added to the already magical atmosphere.

We paid a short visit to the cathedral on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. Preparations were under way for the carol service and the atmosphere was warm. There are a number of interesting monuments, including to the Cavendish family and Florence Nightingale, and some modern stained glass. Time didn't permit a longer stay but we'd definitely revisit if in Derby... More

We'd heard a lot about this cathedral, and decided to have a look. Compared to some we have visited, we found it quite a depressing place. I've seen better looking churches.

My sister visited from South Africa in August 16, and this was the 1st place I took her to see. Both of us were in awe of the Cathedral's splendour and beauty.

We visited the cathedral Tower and surrounding area including some of the underground caves and it was fascinating and a couple of hours well spent. Thoroughly recommended.

Tomb of Bess of Hardwick the most important of several interesting memorials but I didn't get the feel of a Cathedral, rather a large church. Worth a visit, though.
