Alexandra Hotel
Alexandra Hotel


In 1841/2 Siddals Road was extended to connect with Railway Terrace to improve access to the Railway Station. The Alexandra Hotel, near the new Pride Park flyover, was built around 1890. The award-winning pub is named after HRH Princess Alexandra, the Danish princess who married the future Edward VII on 10 March 1863.

In 1974, it became the birthplace of Derby CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale), but despite this was closed for demolition in 1987. For two years it remained boarded up before being rescued by Bateman’s Brewery. The pub has a railway heritage theme and the bar is adorned with railway memorabilia. Accommodation is available.


A short distance to the west of the Midland Railway Station on the corner of Siddals Road and Railway Terrace.
