Locals joke that Derry / Londonderry is a city that is so great they named it twice, displaying their trademark warmth and humour, acknowledging the turbulent history of the City whilst highlighting the vibrancy and modernity of the place today. An imposing city that sits majestically on the banks of the Foyle Estuary, Derry might be second to Belfast in terms of size but it certainly isn’t a runner up when it comes to attractions. The best way to get a feel for the City is to stroll along the perfectly preserved 17th Century ramparts that look out across the characterful old City streets and down to the river. Derry is Britain’s only completely walled City and this walk provides a unique perspective of the City and surrounding countryside. Quaint Shipquay Street climbs steeply through the old town with narrow lanes running off it which host a popular craft village. One building you can’t fail to spot within the City walls is the beautiful gothic Cathedral of Saintt Columb that dates back to 1633. Just outside the walls but equally impressive is the neo-gothic Guildhall, worth a trip if only to marvel at the incredible collection of stained glass windows that chronicle all events of note in Derry’s history. For a City that has had its fair share of troubles, including a 105-day siege (1688-1689) and the killings of Bloody Sunday in 1972, it tells its story well with a wealth of fine museums, the most comprehensive being The Tower Museum. Others worth visiting include the Museum of Free Derry in Bogside, the Workhouse Museum and Prehen House that offers spectacular views over the City and the Foyle. Chronicling Derry’s history as well as any museum and in the most impactful way imaginable, are the unmissable murals of Bogside, Waterside and The Fountain. These serve as a poignant reminder that whilst Derry today represents a vibrant modern city, it respects and remembers its turbulent history. Aside from the architecture and history there is plenty to entertain in Derry. It is host to a thriving arts scene, with numerous literary and music events throughout the year. Derry might have given the world two Nobel Prize winners in the form of Seamus Heaney and Sir John Hume, but what a visitor is most likely to take away
