New Homes in Derby

Make the move

A lively place to live and the most central destination in the country, buying a new home in Derby is a great choice.

Here you can take in the history, get involved with the culture, shop to your heart’s content or explore the landscape of the Peak District.

Things to see and do

Derby is filled with history, and sitting at its central is its cathedral. Its 10 bells are the oldest set in the world, one of which was made in 1520 during the reign of Henry VIII. Climbing the cathedral’s 189 steps will give you great views of Derby and the surrounding four counties; you may even see the family of peregrine falcons which have lived in the church tower for several years. Another highlight of the cathedral includes the tomb of Bess of Hardwick.

The Cathedral Quarter is a lively part of town with unique shops, arts and cultural venues and a great café culture. Explore one-off boutiques down hidden streets, and spend a few hours taking in the atmosphere.

Described by Lonely Planet as ‘the best place to drink real ale in the world’ you’ll find a great selection of places for a drink. Derby’s ale houses attract a crowd who appreciate real ale, with some pubs having micro-breweries and live music as well.

Derby also has several cultural venues, such as QUAD. Designed as a centre for arts and film, the city centre venue shows international contemporary art, and independent and world cinema. The award-winning café bar is stocked with goods while creative activities are regularly held for all the family.

Living in Derby will give you easy access to some of the UKs best landscapes. The Peak District is lovely in any season, whether it’s for a picnic in the summer or to see the colourful shades of the autumn.

You’ll also find a wide choice of festivals and events to enjoy throughout the year such as Derby Summer Beer Festival, Derby Comedy Festival and Summer Nights Film. 


Derby has a selection of schools both primary and secondary. Those living locally and thinking about higher education may benefit from the University of Derby. According to official figures, its students are more likely to be in employment or study six months after completing their course, than those at other UK universities.

With such a central location, Derby has great transport links. 

By car, it’s just 15 minutes from the M1 junction 24 and also accessible via the A6, A50, A38 and A52.
