When to go

The winter is as cold as you’d expect of the East Midlands, but this is the ideal time to see Derbyshire’s best bits: the snow-capped mountains make for excellent views.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Derby’s closest airport is East Midlands, around 15 miles south. Mainly domestic and European flights arrive here; if you’re travelling from further afield, fly to Birmingham airport, an hour’s drive to Derby.
  • Trains

    Midland Main Line and Cross-Country Trains from all over the UK pass through Derby’s city-centre railway station.
  • Automobiles

    If you’re planning to explore the county’s outdoorsy charms, hire a car from either East Midlands or Birmingham airport. If you’re arriving from London, Derby’s a three-hour drive via the M1.
