Are you a modern day dare devil who lives life at full speed, always chasing new and exciting experiences? 

If you are, Derby is the place for you. The city and surrounding countryside have many attractions and adventures for you to explore, all of which will get your adrenaline flowing. 

Derby’s local sports facilities, lakes and racetracks offer a great selection of activities which include car racing, paintballing, quad biking and water sports. 

Love cycling or BMXing? Alvaston Park has one of the best BMX tracks in the country, while Derby Arena is home to a 250-metre indoor velodrome cycling track.

Also, being right on the edge of the Peak District, Derby is the perfect location for adventurous activities such as mountain biking, rock climbing, bouldering, abseiling, caving, kayaking, hang and paragliding and more. 

And, if you want to venture outside of Derby, there are two theme parks less than an hour away that are voted amongst the best in Europe.
