Favorite thing: Like any other city Derby city centre has a tourist information centre. It is located very in the Market Place next to Assembly Room. All type of information from city, map and guide to all sort of help to make your stay comfortable in city are available.
Favorite thing: There is also a cathedral centre in front of Derby Cathedral, which is a part of this Cathedral. this cathedral centre has A Treasury, exhibition and meeting space. There is also a Gift shop and Coffee shop in this centre where you could have nice cakes and coffee/tea. There is also an education room and library in this centre.
The Tourist Information Centre is located in the Assembley Rooms in Market Place near where Cornmarket meets Irongate. You can get information on local attractions, book tours, theatre tickets or accomodation.

I like cities where there are random performances going on in the streets, be it fire-eaters, jugglers, mime-artists or whatever.
In Derby's pedestrianised shopping district, I stumbled across a performance by a couple of Native American Indians! I was definitely not expecting this and they drew quite a crowd. Their traditional musical performance was really good and they were even accompanied by an animal skull! Check out the pictures! :D
Kedleston Hall is a classical Palladian mansion built for the Curzon family between 1759 and 1765. It has one of the best examples of Robert Adams interiors in England which has seen very little alteration since its completion.
Fondest memory: Kedleston Hall is only 6 miles or so from Derby city centre, but is a world away and a great place to unwind.
