It is approximately 50 miles from Derby to Manchester. If you decided to go by car then it would probably take you around an hour depending on if you went at the speed of fifty miles per hour. If you drove on the motorway at a faster pace it would be considerably less and may only take you around forty five minutes.
You can also do the journey via train to Manchester and there are a number of lines which service the route. With the train journey it would only be around forty minutes with a few stops in between.
Derby is made up of a few cities that are commonly known as the Midlands. The Midlands also consists of a number of other cities including Leicester, Coventry, Nottingham as well as Birmingham.
Places of interest that you might come across in this fascinating town include the infamous Derby Cathedral and the Derby Industrial Museum. Derby's industrial museum which changed its name in 2004 to the Derby Silk Mill has a perfect location on the banks of the river Derwent and is located inside a former silk mill.
Originally built in the 18th century it was constructed by George Sorocold who decided to build a five storey water powered silk mill for a chap called John Lombe. Unfortunately Lombe was to meet his fate in 1722 when he was killed by a worker of Italian descent as an act of vindication.
The Silk Mill also forms part of the exclusive Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site which stretches right along from the museum for around 15 miles along the river Derwent to Matlock Bath's Masson Mills.
