"When you are disabled you can find that you spend way too much time having to worry about access, especially when you are thinking about taking a holiday or short break.

The great thing about visiting Derby if you are a disabled person is that once you arrive you can totally forget about it. Disability that is. Everywhere is so accessible that within a few minutes of arriving it completely slips your mind, leaving you free to enjoy the city.

As there is so much to do, from some fantastic shopping, the local thriving arts scene, taking in a show or just enjoying the amazing local scenery or city history, I always pick Derby for a weekend away if I want to unwind and de-stress".
