Why book a Derby Hotel


Being the most central city in the UK, Derby is a great base from which to explore the beautiful countryside of the Peak District as well as the many cultural and historic attractions of the city itself. Dominating the city skyline, Derby Cathedral has the second highest perpendicular church tower in England and the oldest set of 10 church bells in the world. Visitors can climb the 189 steps to the top and take in the spectacular views of the city and its environs. Guests looking to do some shopping can enjoy Intu Derby which has almost 200 stores as well as a variety of restaurants and a cinema, or those looking for a more traditional retail experience can look at booking a hotel in the Cathedral Quarter which has an abundance of unique shops and boutiques. No trip to the Cathedral Quarter would be complete without a visit to Bennetts, an independent store selling quality brands since 1734. Those looking for a more exciting experience are well placed for visits to Donnington Park, which is host to the Moto GP as well as hosting track days and the largest collection of Grand Prix cars in the world. Families are well catered for as well with Alton Towers theme park just 24 miles away, here guests can experience a large number of thrilling roller coasters as well as more relaxing attractions for all ages.
