Fodor's Review

This impressive 18th-century building, located behind the Crescent, was originally designed by John Carr as a stable with room for 110 horses. In 1859 the circular area for exercising horses was covered with a massive 156-foot-wide slate-color dome—bigger than that of St. Paul's Cathedral in London—and incorporated into a hospital. The University of Derby has taken over the building and, when school is in session, runs a restaurant serving lunch and dinner.
