Trains to Derby

First opened in 1839, Derby station was once one of the largest in the UK – a testament to the city's industrial dominance in the Victorian age. Derby was home to one of the world's first true factories, and the station was the HQ for the Midland Railway, including its locomotive and carriage works. Although its iconic Victorian facade was removed in 1985, the original clock can still be seen on an office building in the car park. Today trains to Derby arrive at a modern station in the southeast of the city. It's a short walk away from Pride Park, the home of Derby County FC (aka The Rams) – the ground was built on the site of the old Midland locomotive works. A slightly longer walk north will bring you to the city centre, where the main attractions include Derby Cathedral, Derby Arboretum and Derby Silk Mill, which explores the city's industrial heritage.

Derby train station provides services from East Midlands Trains, CrossCountry and Northern, linking passengers to all corners of the country. You can travel north to Sheffield, Chesterfield and Newcastle along with Nottingham, Leicester and London St Pancras in the south.
