The walls walk is a nice walk with a lot of tourist history boards along the way to read about the history of the walls and the city. Note that we visited in the afternoon/evening and we got a bite to eat half-the-way around the wall walk. when we went to continue and walked further, part of the wall (near... More

It was a pleasure to walk around the old walls of the city of Derry. The history was well recorded on the plagues. It was like a visit to the past.

This is a must if you visit Londonderry. The history is well explained all around the walks by information on boards.

Nice walk around the walls which was nice and also informative. Overlooked the Bogside which all had Scotland flags out as it was the day before the referendum.

A nice view to the town and the river Foyle. A nice thing to do in Derry. Make the walk up the hill to the top and enjoy the view.

Walls were brilliant full of history, still original with the cannons , best way to see is to take a walking tour. I suggest Martin McCrossans tour (Derry City tours). The guys in the yellow shirts.

This is simple, the murals depicting the Bloody Sunday shootings and the fact that the Irish Catholic community is located outside the city walls - bogside - underscore the religous and political divisions that have plagued Irish history. I was familiar with the history, but my travelling companions were not - we had spent 4 days in the Republic, touring... More
