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.

The tour gave a very balanced view of the history of the city, particularly of "The Troubles" and was hopeful about a new beginning. Good length and very entertaining.

The Walls around Derry are well worth visiting. Liked the interpretation boards around the Walls which helped explain the sights. Liked that there were plenty of gates which meant that you could break your walk around to visit places outside the walls.

It is difficult to understand the conflicts that took place here when you come from New Zealand where we live in harmony. Having said that our guide on the tour of the walls gave a great explanation as she had lived her life here.

Did the walls from start to finish and it is lovely. Great views, lovely cannons to view and you can visit places along the way which is great as it is just a matter of coming down off the walls and back on again. It was a lovely day and really enjoyed it.. the walls are beautiful

Friends had highly recommended a walk of the city walls. You can walk on the walls all around the city and it's steeped in history. There are great views of peace bridge and the bogside murals.

We went on this tour which was very informative and interesting. The guide was great and the accent wasn't too broad. Well I understood everything he said. Gave a very neutral description of the events that occurred in this city. Would recommend.
