Derby Cathedral towers above the city and has the second highest perpendicular church tower in England!

The Cathedral is a fascinating place to visit, you’ll be amazed at how light and airy it is. Discover the awesome tomb of Bess of Hardwick – a creation designed by the powerful lady herself.

The intricate Bakewell Screen is one of the Cathedral’s central features and a whole host of other treasures await discovery.

Listen out for the bells too - they are the oldest set of 10 bells in the world, one of which was cast in 1520, during the reign of Henry VIII, and is still in use almost 500 years later, making it one of the oldest working objects in Derby.

Climb the 189 steps to see spectacular views of Derby and the surrounding 4 counties.
