Derby Cathedral

Derby Cathedral Centre
18-19 Iron Gate

This beautiful Georgian Cathedral consecrated in 1927 welcomes visitors 365 days per year. The magnificent medieval tower, the second highest church tower in the country, contains the oldest ring of ten bells in the world, and is open to the public on selected days throughout the year. Within walking distance of the Cathedral, The Chapel, or St. Mary's on the Bridge, is one of Derby's hidden treasures. One of the very few surviving bridge chapels in England, it still continues to be used as a place of worship. This beautiful and fascinating building dates from the 14th Century and houses many architectural clues to the Chapel's intriguing and varied history.

Whilst visiting Derby Cathedral and St. Mary's Chapel, why not stop by the award-winning, newly refurbished Cathedral Centre Café. The café serves light refreshments and lunches and can comfortably accommodate up to 60 people. Derby Cathedral warmly welcomes both able-bodied and disabled visitors, individuals and groups of all ages. Advance notice helps us improve our welcome for wheelchair users and groups. The main building has level access almost throughout, with a lift and a disabled toilet.
