There are great views of the city and they are useful for orientating yourself. Within the walls are most of the city attractions. It was recommended that we go up during the day and then again at night for different views but we never had a chance.

We followed Steeve's walking tour, learned a lot, saw a lot and enjoyed every minute. Along the City Wall walk, we stopped at the First Presbyterian church and had a wonderful personal tour with Gerald including much history of the area.This is an interesting city with friendly, helpful people.

Go before sunset for seeing all city views of Derry. But if after sunset, the light of the gate still lead you home. It's nice without any upsets.

All the guides are able to tell the story of the past, include the different viewpoints and perspectives, give each due respect and then show how this marvellous city is leading the way towards...

Although I live a few miles from the city I have never walked the whole way round the walls till now . There is a lot of history with the walls and it is not in many cities you will find the like of these so worth doing for those reasons alone .Written information can be found at any exhibits... More

We did a little walking tour around Derry, which included the walled city. We found it very interesting, A lot of history in Derry that I had no idea of. We enjoyed it a lot.

Althought the walls were in great condition and maintained well, they are just that, a wall around a city.

In general wasn't impress with the city, apart from the shopping centres it is not a great shopping place. Alot... More

Great view of the rest of the city as you walk along the top of the walls. Fun to do and completely free. The rest of the city is all around the walled city so its in the center of everything in Derry.

An easy stroll that doesn't take up a hige amount of time. Complete wall is a bonus with easy access on and off at various points.
