Hotel Reservations in Derby
The city of Derby is located centrally on the main isle of the United Kingdom. The settlement was established sometime during the 5th century A.D., setting the perfect scene for your luxury hotel in Derby. Landmarks such as the Derby Cathedral and the Derwent Valley Mills play an important role in the city's unique charm.
At the heart of the city sits its crowning jewel, the Derby Cathedral. The church remains the seat of the Bishop of Derby as it has since its groundbreaking in the 1300s. Though small in size compared to other important cathedrals, the church does not lack in presence and remarkable beauty. Its large vaulted ceilings and Romanesque architecture will leave you standing, very appropriately, in awe.
The Derwent Valley Mills is a 15 mile stretch of mills and factories along the River Derwent that has now been named a World Heritage Site (due to its important history.) In the late 16th century Richard Arkwright opened a cotton factory. The mill was the only one of its kind, using water as a main source of energy. The Arkwright system, as it was called, was the first system to harness the power of water to produce mass amounts of textiles which has changed the world as we know it.
