Historically a market town, now a city in its own right, Derby continues to be a retail hub with an impressive market hall, modern shopping centre and more.
If you're planning a shopping spree, we've put together a dedicated page where you can read all about intu Derby, the impressive three-level shopping centre which is home to over 200 stores.
An imposing domed space dating back to 1866, Derby Market Hall is open six days a week and sells a wide variety of goods – from fresh meat to local beers to vintage clothing and craft stalls, there’s something for everyone. The impressive Grade II listed building was designed by Rowland Mason Ordish, who was also responsible for the Albert Hall dome and the detailed roof at St. Pancras train station.
If you want the freshest produce in town, visit Derby Market Hall at 7.30am when the fruit and vegetable stalls open, with the rest of the market open 9am–5pm. If you’re after something to eat, call in to the Pyclet Parlour for a pyclet, the local delicacy that’s pitched somewhere between a pancake and a crumpet. There are also plenty of cafés and bars dotted around the area if you want something more substantial.
Whether you want to sample Derby's vibrant nightlife, or explore some of the East Midland's top attractions, there are several well-located Derby hotels for you to choose from, all within a couple of miles of the city centre.
