Visited this beautiful building on a Sunday and enjoyed the history exhibit in the main floor, very interactive, informative and engaging even for our young children. Unfortunately the upstairs was inaccessible so we didn't get to see the main hall and organ. Lovely stained glass, wish I could have enjoyed some if the guided tours other reviews mention.

If you are lucky enough to catch a guided tour you will not be disappointed. An extremely beautiful building inside and out.

The Guildhall is a thing of beauty. The stain glass windows were amazing and held so much history. Loved the exhibition on the ground floor about the founding of Derry. Loved it so much I went back for a second visit.

Fantastic windows with stained glass and great detail. Revived my memories of the guildhall in the 60s and 70s. Very well restored after the Troubles. Guildhall square outside very accessible too...

Stain glass windows tell a lot of history, everyone must see the grand organ and pictures allowed to be taken

The staff were so welcoming we were loath to leave after an hour's browsing and absorbing some of the history of this unique city.

The refurbished establishment was meant to apply to tourists. However it applied to people who worked there or had some kind of hand in the establishment.

The Guildhall is a lovely building and after years of not being able to enter it is great that you can now have a wander around and have a look at the very interesting free museum inside.
