Ranked a top place to live, Melbourne is a market town in South Derbyshire and indirectly gave its name to the Australian city. In 1837, the then tiny settlement in Australia was named after William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first Prime Minister. Another famous name from Melbourne that has travelled the world is that of Thomas Cook, the travel agent and pioneer of popular travel, who was born in the town in 1808.
