intu Derby

With a high-end cinema complex and a host of up-and-coming retail brands and eateries, intu Derby is the beating heart of the city

Located on the edge of the Peak District, intu Derby not only attracts footfall from surrounding areas, but also from tourists visiting the area. 

The centre plays an important role in adding to the vibrancy of Derby city centre and the region, creating a buzzy hub for its community and tourist industry, so we make sure it delivers exactly what customers and retailers want. 

In Showcase Cinema de Lux, the centre already boasts one of the country’s finest cinemas. Our new leisure anchors Hollywood Bowl and Paradise Island Adventure Golf will build on these successes. 

They’re adding to the centre’s compelling blend of retail, dining and leisure options – including the likes of Mac, Smiggle and Byron Burger – providing even more reasons for people to travel from further and stay with us for longer, throughout the day and into the evening.

intu Derby is a focal point not just for a city but for a whole region

intu Derby’s potential is huge and therefore a prime site for our strategic investment and careful asset management. It sits in the bustling heart of Derby, which is itself the gateway to the outstanding countryside of the Peak District, attracting millions of extra visitors to the area every year. 

The city draws in 2.1 million workers every day from the surrounding areas, and is naturally very well connected for travel, with excellent bus and train links, and the M1 motorway close by.

In March 2016, we signed two major names to our new 42,000 sq ft leisure space at intu Derby  which is opened in early 2017. 

Situated on the third level of the centre, the leisure area is home to Hollywood Bowl and Paradise Island Adventure Golf, as intu Derby builds on the success of recent lettings to offer visitors the right balance of retail, dining and leisure in order to attract more guest from further afield and for longer.

Hollywood Bowl bought its latest generation of family entertainment centres to intu Derby with 18 fully computerised lanes, including 4 exclusive VIP lanes. Set over 23,000 sq ft it will also feature an American diner, a stylish bar and fun packed amusements and pool areas. The décor will be a celebration of Americana including a full-size vintage Ford Mustang. 

Paradise Island Adventure Golf occupies just under 14,000 sq ft of space and provides an exciting mini-golf challenge set amidst a tropical island paradise with two bespoke 18-hole golf courses. The courses are full of twists and turns, designed to send the ball on a rollercoaster ride, whilst allowing players the chance to test their skills through a maze of obstacles and uneven terrain.  


Adventure golf is fast becoming one of the most popular attractions on the UK leisure scene and this is our third location in an intu development. intu offers some of the most exciting leisure opportunities in the UK and we hope to continue to build our relationship further in other intu destinations."
