Derby, DE1 2FS

Less than fifty miles south of Sheffield is the city of Derby which was supposedly named after a Gaelic and Danish corruption of the word Djura-by which means Village of the Deer. With an interesting melange of Viking, Roman and Saxon backgrounds, this city was the epicenter of the Industrial Revolution in the 16th Century. Presently it is the culture spot for Britain's deaf community who tend to live here owing to the presence of a strong sign language usage. Theater, art, sports, music and other forms of recreation are Derby's forte, attracting hordes of tourists each year.
