There is a very good exhibition on the ground floor explaining the history of Northern Ireland and of Derry. The building itself is good to see - rebuilt and refurbished, but still very impressive.

Free and very informative. Good to do especially on a rainy day. It doesn't take long. Found out lots about the Ulster Plantation which I had long forgotten since school.

The guildhall was a beautiful building. In July 2014 the city held a Flavours of the Foyle, seafood festival just outside of the guildhall. This was excellent. The food was amazing.
