Derby continues its proud heritage as a birthplace of the industrial revolution with a thriving manufacturing economy. It’s the home of prestigious automotive leader Rolls-Royce and boasts the world-famous Donington Park motor racing circuit.
It’s unsurprising, then, that Derby is a dream for commuters. Being close to the M1, the city has extensive transport links with the rest of the country, including London, Sheffield and Leeds, while Leicester and Birmingham are only half an hour on the train. It’s close to East Midlands Airport, too, taking the stress out of those international flights.
Quality of life
Derby scores highly on uSwitch’s Best Places to Live in the UK Quality of Life Index. In fact, it was previously called the second-best place to live in the country. This reputation is aided by low costs of living and affordable housing combined with higher-than-average income levels — a perfect recipe for a happy life.
