Yes, vacations are important. I don’t even need to remind you that. They refresh our mind. They remind us of the beauty out there on the other side of the world. It is while at the vocation that we forget how boring the workplace had been, and when we get back, we are more energised and productive. We break the monotony and boredom. And a lot more benefits.

1.Derby Cathedral; All Saints Church in Derby

You might be wondering why on earth you should visit a Cathedral on a vocation. Regardless of your religious affiliations, you should never end your stay in Derby without landing in Derby Cathedral. I arrived at this Cathedral anxious to have a look at this tower built in the 16th century by Henry Vii. Its design amused me. I would wonder what the motivation was behind its pinnacles of 212ft high with a whopping 189 steps to reach the roof.

2.Pickford’s House Museum of Georgian Life and Costume

If you’ve ever wondered of other Places to Visit in East Derby UK, there is the Pickford’s House Museum of Georgian Life and Costume. After leaving Derby Cathedral, I decided to go straight to this museum. My expectations were not disappointed. I got a chance to have a look at the rooms built in 1800 to 1810 and the small garden outside. I got to see the dining room on the ground floor, the morning room, the Georgian bedroom, and dressing room. What surprised me the most was the thought of what exactly would happen in the morning room and what was the real motivation to have them incorporated in the initial plan.

3.Derby Museum & Art Gallery

I got to see a collection of geology and archaeology, porcelain and several paintings of Joseph Wright artist. This is the place to find the largest collection of this celebrated artist.
