Commute

Our office is a five minute walk from Derby city centre and Derby train station. Commuting to or from central London (Paddington) is made easy by regular direct train journeys that take around two hours.

Site information

Our office is located on Pride Park, a business park on the outskirts of the city centre of Derby. Developed in the 1990s, the park covers 80 hectares of former industrial land between the River Derwent and the railway lines. It houses a Holiday Inn Express, Penta hotel and several car dealerships. It is also located close to retail parks, restaurants and fast food outlets. 

Pride Park Stadium and Derby Arena are also both located within Pride Park. Derby Arena is a multi-purpose sports and events venue, and Pride Park Stadium hosts Derby County F.C.
