Shopping in Derby

"With the Intu shopping centre you can get everything you want, and there are lots of student discounts"

You'll find plenty of shopping opportunities in the city

From independent shops and designer boutiques along the cobbled streets of the Cathedral Quarter, to big names like Primark on our high street, and over 190 shops in Intu Derby like H&M and Topshop.

Intu Derby

Intu Derby is one of the UK’s top shopping centres, and the number one shopping destination in the East Midlands (Source: The Definitive Guide to Shopping Centres). It is home to many popular high street names and designer brands with lots of student discounts available. Intu’s late night shopping on Thursdays and Fridays means you’ll have more time to browse after a day at university.

Intu shopping centre has more than 1 million square feet of shopping heaven, plus Eat Central with 800 seats and mouth watering tastes from around the world. You can also enjoy a break from shopping by visiting the luxury 12-screen Cinema de Lux.

Cathedral Quarter

The historic Cathedral Quarter has a different feel altogether with its vintage boutiques, craft and gift shops, cafes, museums and art galleries. Explore the arcades and avenues nestled within its confines to discover a wealth of specialist retailers for an alternative shopping experience.
