Retire to Derby

Calke Abbey, Derby


Derby’s attractions bring thousands of visitors to the city each year thanks to the variety of experiences on offer. You can visit the museum at the Silk Mill, which was the world's first factory, or you can hear the 500-year-old bells at Derby Cathedral. Alternatively, you can explore the stately homes at Kedleston Hall and Calke Abbey. It's also just a short trip up to the Crich Tramway Village, a restored period village full of old-fashioned shops.

You can also explore the extravagant Hardwick Hall, which was designed as a deliberate statement of immense wealth. Here you can see the ruins of the old hall, explore the gardens and view 16th century embroideries, tapestries and furniture.
