Friendly meander

Had a lovely unaccompanied walk along the walls and found the boards very informative. There were plenty of places to stop and rest along the way.

Do-able in a fairly short time and accessable even with a walking difficulty. So much to see from the walls in all directions. Well worth doing.

A visit to Derry isn't complete until you walk the walls. A brilliant advantage point. Some quite steep sections

The walls of Derry are a must for all tourists to this historical city, one of the few walled city's left intact. Tours are available at about £4 / €5 and includes a free tea or coffee :) some areas are not easily walked by the infirm or elderly as a little steep but its only a very small section... More

Very informative walking tour of the city wall. Loads of history both ancient and near past. Get a guide that can explain all that you will see.

The history and culture of Londonderry is brought to life with a visit to the walls. The guided tour is a real must for any visitor to the city.

If you visit the city and don't walk the walls- you are a disgrace and a philistine! No seriously, if you are mobile you will throughly enjoy the experience. It can be completed in twenty minutes but you should take longer and admire the views, buildings and information boards.

A nice walk around Derry in the sun around the wall. Takes you all the way round with information about the history of Derry. Some of the walk is steep hills but manageable for all of the family.

A walk of the walls of Londonderry is a great lesson in history. I enjoyed it but choose a dry and sunny day if possible.
