Altered blueprints at Derby Train Station

Derby train station opened in 1839 with six platforms, a Victorian frontage and a iconic central clock. While it has naturally undergone huge transformation since these early days, the very same Victorian clock now displays proudly in its car park. The station sits marginally to the south east of the city centre and is flanked by the River Derwent.

Shops and nature, just steps from the station

The station sits 400 metres from the glistening Derwent and 600 metres from the centre of Derby, where there is an intu shopping centre with all the high street stores under one roof. If you prefer to be outdoors, Bass recreational ground is a tree-lined park that runs through the city centre and is just five minutes walk from Derby train station. It's popular with skaters, cyclists and walkers.

Celebrations and more at a former roundhouse

The roundhouse is just outside the station and although previously it used to move trains from line to line by rotating or lifting the trains, today it's used as an event space and is often used for weddings and parties.
