As one of the most central cities in England, Derby was once a crucial crossroads for transport and trade. It's often called ‘the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution’, and you can see signs of its history all over the city and its architecture.

If you’re more of a fan of the great outdoors than history, then visit the Derby Arboretum, which was the UK’s first public park. The park is said to have inspired Central Park in New York and after a refurbishment in the 21st century thanks to a £5 million National Lottery grant, the park is now home to children's play areas, a nature reserve, sculptures, gardens, sports facilities, and a number of restored historic buildings.
