Cathedral Quarter Going For Gold

The Cathedral Quarter is an historic and unique area of Derby, full of interesting and creative businesses. There is a great community spirit where businesses work together to promote each other and the Cathedral Quarter. Visitors are always positive about the area and its unique identity which stands out from the rest of the city.
