Melbourne Certificated Locations

The town of Melbourne is situated in the English county of Derbyshire, right on the edge of the National Forest and just south of Derby.

It's an attractive market town with a host of Georgian buildings - and it helped to inspire the moniker of its now-more famous Australian namesake.

Highlights in the town include Melbourne Pool and Melbourne Hall and Gardens that overlook it, all of which are beautifully landscaped. Don't miss The Birdcage and the long Yew Tunnel, which is particularly evocative in autumn and winter.

You'll find a good range of restaurants, cafes and shops in Melbourne and an excellent programme of annual events, including a carnival in July and an autumnal festival in September.
