INFORMATION FOR THOSE VISITING FROM OUT OF TOWN:

Transport:

The two closest airports to Derby are:

  • East Midlands (Nottingham) Airport: 20-25 min by taxi to Derby City Centre; there's also a train to Derby, but the taxi isn't too expensive and a much faster option.
  • Birmingham Airport: about 1h train to Derby, requiring 1 change at Birmingham New Street Station.

Other travel options include:

  • Flying to London Luton Airport: there's a direct train from Luton Parkway to Derby train station. Luton Parkway can be reached via shuttle from the airport.
  • Reaching London St Pancras Train Station either by Eurostar or underground (for those arriving to London by other means): there are direct trains from St Pancras to Derby train station. The trip usually takes 1.5-2h.
