Visiting Derby

Sitting on the banks of the River Derwent, Derby sits comfortably between the Midlands (Birmingham) and the North-East (Sheffield), a short drive from both Burton upon Trent and Loughborough. Derby, which likes to be known as the most central in the UK, is steeped in history, with the thriving silk trade of the 18th century lending it an important place in England's industrial revolution. The town was also originally settled by Romans, so enjoys a wealth of potential for history buffs.

As Derby is rather compact (indeed, it only earned city status in 1977), it is also far less intimidating than a lot of major English cities, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty to keep visitors occupied. Scale the Heights of Abraham by cable car and discover one of the region's most unique hilltop parks, complete with cavern tours, fossil exhibitions and more. Or head to the Derby Silk Mill museum and experience the trade that made the city famous.

Sports fans, meanwhile have the world-famous Donington Park nearby and Pride Park Stadium,  home of Derby County FC. The 'central city' also enjoys extensive transport links with the rest of the country, which makes it an ideal launchpad destination for a full tour of the UK.

Pickup Locations in Derby


Our coach and minibus operators know Derby well. Here are some popular coach pick up locations to inspire your trip:


Coach Hire Derby

If you're planning a coach trip to or from Derby or the Derbyshire area then we can help you get where you need to go by putting you in touch with one of over 195 trusted and reliable coach operators. The three-stage process is remarkably straightforward: Enter your information and the details of your trip; wait just a few minutes for our team to respond with up to 4 quotes; choose the quote that best suits your needs and book your coach online. The quotes you receive will outline not only the price of the package on offer, but a full specification breakdown and images of the vehicle you're potentially booking.

Travelling by coach boasts a greater degree of comfort than other transport options and also allows a lot more space. Our operators can offer a range of vehicles, suitable for any journey length or group size. From double-decker deluxe coaches with reclining seats and bathrooms, seating over 70 people, to smaller, single tier coaches, there is plenty to choose from. The one thing uniting all of our operators, and all of their coaches, however, is quality, comfort and reliability.

Minibus Hire Derby

Planning a trip to Derby, but feeling like a coach might be a little too substantial for your requirements? Look no further than our minibus hire comparison network, which runs parallel to our coach hire system. A minibus is an ideal option for inner-city travel, as they are more compact and easier to handle. Our operators also deal with minibuses that can comfortably hold up to 30 people, so even if you are travelling with a larger group, it might be an option to seriously consider.

You should also rest easy in the knowledge that you're getting the best price possible as we don't take a commission. All of our operators pay a monthly membership fee in order to be a part of our trusted network, so you know you're working with businesses that believe in their service. The companies we work with, many of them doubling as coach and minibus operators, supply only the best, high-quality vehicles with state-of-the-art features and drivers with a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the roads in and around Derby.

Coach Hire Comparison has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 from 1386 reviews.
