Derby Maps and Orientation

(Derby, Derbyshire, England, UK)

Cathedral viewLocated in the East Midlands area of central England, the city of Derby resides in the county of Derbyshire. Lying alongside the River Derwent and particularly close to Nottingham, Derby is known for its lively Cathedral Quarter, which offers a memorable shopping experience and plenty of street cafes.

Much of central Derby contains some rather characterless pedestrianised streets, while the historical area of the city is considerably more appealing, with the partially cobble stretch known as the Iron Gate (Irongate) being extremely attractive. The Iron Gate leads to the cathedral and is sandwiched between Queen Street and the Cornmarket, being a good place to start to familiarise yourself with the city centre.
