Bus Travel in Derby

Take the bus and plant yourself at Derby’s Arboretum Park

Derby, a city located in the East Midlands, is a wonderful place to explore nature. Derby’s Arboretum Park is England’s first public park and was supposedly the inspiration for New York’s Central Park. There's also 14 museums for some culture. A true highlight is Derby's glorious cathedral with its breathtaking interior. There's even a family of peregrine falcons that call the place home, look out for them!

We offer over 10 bus routes in and around Derby including routes that travel to Burton-on-Trent, Swadlincote and many more places besides.
