Great way to see the city...

Definitely worth a visit especially as out stay in Derry was short and sweet. Really well kept and great views of the city including a large number of murals.

From the cannons and gun slits of the past, to the political murals of the present, the Walls provide a glorious view and want to learn more. There were just enough explanatory plaques that we were fine without an audio guide. Easy and frequent access provides convenience to attractions, restaurants and pubs. Walled cities are so infrequent now, we were... More

Great views over the city. A great way to spend an afternoon with lots of interesting stop offs on the way around. Stunning canons and well informed information plaques on way around.

We booked the guided tour of the walls from our hotel. It was so much nicer than just walking around the walls ourselves. Our guide was very informative and had some funny anecdotes, he could also walk backwards and talk. A feat he was proud of. At the end we were offered a free cup of tea or coffee. A... More

It is true what they say that you don't appreciate what is on your own doorstep. I don't know how often I have visited the city and I have never walked round the walls. It was a beautiful day and with people sitting outside some of the restaurants and cafes you could have believed yourself to be in a walled... More

The Derry city walls are a lovely setting for a nice walk around Derry. You can get a nice view of Derry as you stroll around and look down on the murals in the Bodside and across to the floodlights of Celtic Park and the Brandeywell. Even though it rained as we walked arounf you get a great view and... More

I nice stroll of intermediate difficulty (there are some hills) but well worth the efforts. I recommend a tour guid to learn more about the history. But... More

Walking the Londonderry Wall provides a great overview of the city. It can be very windy but worth the effort.
