When the Cathedral reopens in September 2015 after its major interior refurbishment, once again there will be lots to see.
Derby Cathedral has one of the tallest church towers in the country, and there are regular tower tours. Bess of Hardwick, together with many members of the Cavendish family, have their memorials here. There is a treasury with lots of Cathedral and diocesan silver. The Bakewell Screen and two windows by Ceri Richards are deservedly very famous, drawing international attention.
The interior of the Cathedral, presently being redecorated, is an Enlightenment triumph, filled with light, wonderfully surprising to those who expect religious gloom!
Do come to visit! There were nearly 50,000 visitors last year, and all are welcome. There is a café, and bookshop, opposite the Cathedral. And the Bridge Chapel is less than a five minute walk away.
Our welcomers will greet you as you enter the Cathedral and we also have a team of experienced guides who will be very happy to take you on a tour of the Cathedral. To organise a visit to the Cathedral please call the Cathedral office on 01332 341201 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
