You’ll be blown away by the architecture of this amazing place which is now the inspiring home of Derby College. See the original rail tracks and reminders of Derby’s railway heritage around every corner.

Walk through the old carriage workshop and engine shed and imagine the scene of workers creating locomotives and carriages from scratch - a complete world away from the health and safety regulations of today.

The Roundhouse opens its doors as the grand finale where you can enjoy a cuppa at your leisure as you enjoy the stunning surroundings. The tour is a real eye-opener about life in the 1800s. Tours need to be booked in advance.
