We opened the branch in St James Street in 1956 – making it also our second oldest, after our Customer Service Centre in Leek – and we have remained at the same location ever since.
Derby changed its status to city in June 1977, and its ‘Cathedral of All Saints’ contains the oldest ring of 10 bells in the whole of the United Kingdom…
It's easy to get to our branch in the centre of Derby. We are situated on St James Street, less than two minutes’ walk away from Victoria Street and around 5 minutes’ walk from Derby bus station.
Should you wish to visit Derby town centre by car, there are many car parks, the closest being on St James Street itself or alternatively the NCP Car Park on Colyear Street around 2 minutes’ walk away.
If you are visiting the branch from further away, Derby Midland Railway Station is not too far from the branch - just over a mile away.
