Derby, Derbyshire

Review of Derby by edward rokita on October 15th, 2006
Derby is the UK's most central city benefiting from the best of both worlds - a great cultural base situated on the edge of the Peak District National park. Derby is famous for setting in motion Britain's Industrial Revolution with some of the countrys first factories and spinning mills. It is equally famous for later factories of Rolls Royce, Royal Crown Derby and Railway engineering. The thriving City centre boasts an excellent range of entertainment venues, attractions, pubs, restaurants, parks and open spaces. More at www.derby-guide.co.uk
