Things to do NI
Derry is famous for its 400 year old intact city walls which surround the old city which lies on the banks of the River Foyle. This one mile of city walls are known as one of the best examples of a walled city in Europe. Just a short walk from the Guildhall and the City’s famous Walls, is the Peace Bridge. Since its launch in 2011 the Peace Bridge has become an integral part of the City’s infrastructure and is held in high regard by locals and visitors alike for its stunning physical beauty and in equal measures for the symbolic story it represents. A mural featuring the popular cast of Derry Girls, a comedy series which follows a group of five high school students, is now fast becoming a must see for visitors to the city.
