Hilton was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086 as belonging to Henry de Ferrers and being worth ten shillings. Although ancient, it has undergone a great deal of development.

1993 - Development agreement granted over 280-acre (1.1 km2) MOD site.
2000 - Acquisition of MoD's remaining freehold interest.
2004 - Acquisition of water authorities former sewage works.
Many well known house builders have contributed to the development including Redrow (which also included one of their Debut By Redrow developments aimed at first time buyers and people starting over), McLean, Persimmon, Bryant and Wimpy.
Hilton chauffeur services and Hilton airport transfers are well provided by Chauffeurs Hilton VIP as well as minibus hire Hilton Derbyshire.

Hilton also has a small retail site which is home to Tesco Express, The Hilton Fish Bar, Hilton Brook pub. This was recently extended with the addition of three new units, occupied by Jhoots Pharmacy and two locally owned businesses; a Chinese takeaway and an estate agent. (The Chinese Takeaway replaces the coffee bar)
Two old village pubs: The Old Talbot & The Kings Head plus the Hilton House Hotel are three of the villages original watering holes all on Main Street Hilton. Hilton House Hotel is a Georgian built family home formerly in the grounds of Wakelyn Hall but converted into a hotel in the 1960s and currently run by proprietors Colin & Zoe Clark. The hotel is licensed for civil weddings and has a sizeable function room, 10 bedrooms and public bar.
Hilton has expanded into a large commuter village populated by people working for Toyota, Rolls-Royce or commuting to Derby, Nottingham or the West Midlands. The current school is being expanded and other local services are struggling to cope with the increased population.
Toyota Derby is a good client base for visitors to this site, although Toyota themselves have a chauffeur contract with another company, Derby Chauffeurs VIP have taken many bookings for visiting clients over the years.
We have many years experience dealing with Japanese clients for many local companies across the east midlands region. They expect an high standard of service, and Derby Chauffeurs VIP & Minibus always aim to exceed their expectations.
