Great way to see the heart of Derry

And learn about the history surrounding Freedom Park. Some of the murals are so well done they should be in a museum as a legacy of those times we all wish never happened.

Nice walk with local guide . Guide shared historic facts of the city, London-Derry. I liked the lovey views from the city wall and the Tower gates walk openings were interesting.

The City Walls are very historic, their symbolism being relevant in the modern day and recent history too. Best enjoyed on a dry day. If you can, get a tour - Our tour guide was fantastic at explaining the history and legacy.

We just did this walk on our own, so I'm sure we missed the whole history of it. We did see a few tour guides along the way explaining the reason for the cannons and such. I just liked the un crowded way to get around the city with pleasant view.

We dropped in the tourist information office and received great advice from the wonderful lady behind the desk. Her recommendation was to walk the wall and she was absolutely right. After a short walk up the hill we were on the wall and enjoying all the sights - it was great.

Excellent view of the city and lots of history and interesting facts to read on the way around. A beautiful old church and graveyard which is worth going into.

I hope "city walls" means the painted murals in Bogside near the "Free Derry" sign. Seeing the murals and walking through the area made infamous on Bloody Sunday was the highlight of our visit to Derry, although it's difficult to call such a sobering experience a highlight. The Bogside Artists paintings are impressive.
