Derby - What to do with 1.5 days?

Jump to last reply

Hi, Fodorites! (and I'm looking at you, indydad!)

I’m hoping to get some thoughts on what to do with (1) full day, and ½ day in Derby.

Plan to visit Hardwick Hall as a full-day excursion, but then I can’t decide what to do on the next full day. The ½ day, I hope for some ideas in the city of historical interest. [I only have 1/2 day, as in the late afternoon (around 2:30-3 ish), I need to be on a train toward Manchester Airport.]

About me:
Reliant on public transportation.
Very interested in late 18th-early 20th century history.
Interested in botanical science, gardens, parks.
Interested in National Trust/English Heritage properties.

For my full day, I thought one of these…
Calke Abbey
Kedleston Hall
Sudbury Hall
Any thoughts on the above?

For my ½ day in Derby city, I thought…
Pickford House?

Any other ideas for what a person might enjoy that is quintessentially “Midlands-ish" in Derby?

Thanks for any thoughts!
