Derby is situated in the lower valley of the River Derwent. Most of the areas surrounding the city are relatively flat plains, set in the Trent Valley Washlands and South Derbyshire Claylands. Initially important locally as a market town, Derby grew rapidly in the industrial era. Today, Derby is an internationally renowned centre for advanced transport manufacturing, and a significant cultural centre for the deaf community in Britain with its strong sign language-using community, second only to London in size.

The Cathedral Quarter has a large range of shops, boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. It is focused around the Cathedral and the area around Irongate and Sadler Gate and includes the Market place, Guildhall, City Museum and the Silk Mill industrial museum. St Peters Quarter boasts a diverse range of shops in Green Lane, Babington Lane, Osmaston Road. St Peters Street, London Road and East Street also include a large choice of pubs and restaurants. The Friar Gate area contains clubs and bars, making it the centre of Derby's nightlife. Derby is also well provided with pubs and is renowned for its large amount of real ale outlets. The oldest pub is the Grade II listed Ye Olde Dolphin Inn, dating from the late 16th century. Such hospitality sustains visitors and locals alike, but can offer opportunities for scavenging mice, rats, cockroaches and feral pigeons to find easy food scraps from unsecured bin bags and spilt takeaways.
Derby Arboretum, donated to the town by philanthropist Joseph Strutt in 1840, was the first planned urban public park in the country. Other major parks in the city include Allestree Park, Darley Park, Chaddesden Park, Alvaston Park, Normanton Park and Osmaston Park. Derby and Derwent Rowing Clubs are located on the banks of the river, where there is also a riverside walk and cycle path. Rodents will use these green corridors, along rivers, canal banks and verges of cycle pathways as safe harbourages to nest. Rats will then forage in sheds, basements, garages and gardens for food scraps, spilt litter, unsecured bins and any other potential food sources.
