  Derby Cathedral  is certainly worth a trip. It is light and a haven of peace close to the main shopping areas.
Approach from the A52 taking the A6 to Matlock as you approach from the first roundabout . Keep heading into the left hand lane and follow signs to The Centre.
The Cathedral is dominated by the Bakewell wrought iron screen which divides the nave from the chancel.

Not far away is Pickford`s House Museum. Pickford's House, a Grade One listed building, was built in 1770 by architect Joseph Pickford as his family home and work premises. Other houses in Friar Gate, Derby`s finest Georgian Street, were also designed by Pickford, but Number 41 is the only one which the public can enter and learn what domestic life was like in eighteenth and early nineteenth century Derby.

While in the area you could also visit the Royal Crown Derby visitor centre to the south of the city.
