Located centrally within England, and lying just a few miles to the west of the M1, Derby is well-placed for travel around the UK - despite its relatively rural setting. Nottingham lies just 30 minutes drive away, with Birmingham reachable by car in under one hour at most times of the day.
Two park and ride bus services operate in Derby - leaving from either the Meteor Centre or Pride Park, and travelling into the city centre. Due to its relatively flat topography, the city is also well-suited for travel by bicycle, and many local cycle routes are available.
