Derby in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... can be expensive in The Westfield Centre so you would be better parking in the surrounding car parks- especially if you are planning to stay in Derby for the day. However Westfield Centre car park is cheap in the evening and only costs £1.50 after 6pm, which is good if you want to go to the cinema. *Employment* The westfield Centre has been a huge help to the City, bringing in more trade and helping to lower unemployment levels by employing lots of people in the shopping centre. *Education* Derby offers good levels of further and higher education, it has a college and there is also the University Of Derby, which is a partner university ... more

As I live on the outskirts of Derby I thought I would write a little review about it. Derby is quite a small city when you compare to places like London, Birmingham or Manchester but if you have ever visited Derby you will know good things come in small packages. Derby has a number of pubs, clubs and shops and has recently opened a new shopping centre, The Westfield Centre. *Shopping* The Westfield Centre has a whole host of different shops ranging from womens clothing shops like New Look to a Sony shop that sells all electrical goods. The Westfield Centre also has a multiscreen cinema which only opened on March ... Read the complete review

Well as I am from derby myself I thought I would try and write a review about my city. Derby is a fairly small city it depends where you have come from and what you think is small?. There are many areas within derby, Some are known too be scruffy, but there are many gorgeous parts of derby which have alot of countryside. I live in Alvaston and my house is literally a 4 minute walk too Elvaston Castle which I absoutly love as I walk here almost every day with my 18month old. The area I live in is a fairly nice area. It has a small shopping bit with a few shops like Tesco express, Co-op, lots of takeaways, Boots, post office, bike shop and a ... Read the complete review

One of the main reasons that I visit Derby for is to enjoy it's night life. Therefore, I'll write my review on the night life in Derby. I always tend to have a good night out in Derby. There are a wide variation of bars, though it would be great if the city had some more nightclubs. Santanda is a bar based in the market place, next to the Derby Assembly Rooms. This is a lovely bar to start the night in. At the weekends it has a live DJ, playing a good mix of modern music. The bar has a great design, with rocks and waterfall features. Walkabout is an Australian bar, again in the market place. This plays a great selection of music, ... Read the complete review

Being Derby born and bred and now living in the States where everything is bigger you start to realise what a "City" is and what a real "City" is, Derby is technically a City but pales in comparison to a Birmingham or a Manchester, with a population of around 230,000 people theres certainly enough mix to keep things interesting. Derby for a long time was one of the few towns in England to have a Cathedral but not city status, that all changed in 1977 when the queen awarded Derby "City Status" and its been growing ever since. In terms of employment Derby and its surrounding areas have some major players, Rolls ... Read the complete review
