You can visit the newly refurbished Guildhall for free. The exhibitions are worth looking at. Lots of historical events have taken place in this building up to very recent times.

Gerry , the guide , at Guildhall in Derry is simply amazing!

I may be a little biased due to having the pleasure of travelling from Australia to be married in this wonderful building, but I'll carry on regardless.

Beautiful building to tour and they had an exhibition going on which gave us the history of Londonderry/Derry. There is also a cafe in the back, but the coffee was horrible. Visit the building, skip the cafe.
