A lovely bright and airy cathedral with clean Georgian interior. We had the opportunity to join two other male voice choirs in a great evening concert. Some really interesting exhibits = particularly Bess of Hardwick.

I always try to find the Head Masons Mark, most large churches and Cathedrals will have his trade mark by something that is different mostly in a arch or a pillar, to the rest. Did not find it but it will be there.

We visited Derby Cathedral as part of Richard Felix's Towers and Tunnels tours- which I highly recommend. If you do visit be sure to pre-book to explore the tower. This tour is not suitable for those with walking difficulties or those who are claustrophobic, as...More

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.
