Kilburn is a village and civil parish in the English county of Derbyshire.

Forming part of the district of Amber Valley, Kilburn has small amenities for the people who live there including a local police station, community officer and several parks for young children. There are two takeaway restaurants, Kilburn Fish Bar which serves traditional British fish and chip cuisine, and a Chinese restaurant, Jade Garden. There are two shops in the village - News Shop which is a medium sized newsagent, and the newly opened Metro Stores, a slightly larger premises which stocks more foodstuffs and sundries. There used to be a SPAR (previously known as Windmill Stores) in a central location, although this has now closed down. It is believed there is now planning permission for houses in place to replace the now vacant shop. There is also a post office on Highfield Rd, but this serves few goods beyond stationery or items associated with the postal service. There is also a salon on Highfield Road, Ghost, that offers a range of beauty treatments. It was once served by Kilburn railway station on the Midland Railway Ripley Branch.

Kilburn has three public houses: The Headmasters Office (previously the Cricketers), The Hunters Arms and the Travellers Rest. There is also a working men's club (Kilburn Social Club) adjoined to the football field at the back of Chapel Street. The other prominent features of the village include the War Memorial situated at the top of Bywell Lane, and the Village Hall on Church St, which hosts various leisure activities and is available for residents to hire and use.

Kilburn is served by 3 schools within the village: Kilburn Nursery (4 - 5), Kilburn Infant School (5 - 7) and Kilburn Junior School (7 - 11). School children then progress to John Flamsteed Community School in Denby until they are 16.

There is also a Baptist Chapel as well as a Methodist Chapel, located on Highfield Road and Chapel St, respectively.

A number of associations serve the village. The Parish Council is elected from local residents and works toward improving and maintaining the village. The Kilburn Community Association maintains a similar role, though it has no official mandate. A village newsletter keeps resident informed of the workings of both these bodies, as well as other institutions such as the local Women's Institute which serves both Kilburn and Denby. There are annual traditions such as a village treasure hunt, a village quiz and carol singing which raise funds both for the village and charitable causes in Derbyshire.
