Derby Market Place

Derby's Market Place is located in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter, with great transport links from all areas of the City and just a few minutes walk from the Bus Station. It is surrounded by two of Derby's entertainment venues - Guildhall Theatre and QUAD, along with a selection of shops, bars and restaurants.

The Market Place is often at the heart of City-wide celebrations such as Derby Festé and Derby Caribbean Carnival as well as festive events like the Christmas Lights Switch-On and the Derby Christmas Ice Rink. It also hosts various specialist markets, Arts and Craft Fairs and Funfairs.

The Market Place is also the location for Derby's Speakers Corner, which is positioned behind the Waterfall and gives residents and visitors the opportunity to air their views and opinions, provoke debate and entertain.
