Visited The Guildhall to watch the Bloody Sunday Enquiry a number of years back, have now revisited the building which has been spruced up quite a bit. Fine building and worthwhile seeing internally.

Saw the Guildhall at night and during the day. It is a stunning building and at night it takes on a fairy tale like appearance.

The Guildhall is free to the Public and it is not only gorgeous but educational. There is an Historic, interactive exhibit that is well worth visiting. As an added bonus, the day we visited, there was a Christmas Fair on the second floor. make sure you go up there and at least check out the fantastic organ.

We had a fantastic tour guide who took us around the Guildhall where we learnt how it came to be, how it got its name, how key Derry has been in Ireland's history and the history of the Guildhall. Lasts around an hour. I would strongly recommend to anybody.

We were so lucky to arrive there as Gerry was startin his tour. He basically explains the history and impact of Derry on world's history just by explainin the amazing windows. Prepare to stand for at least 30 mins. Gerry is amazing, dont miss his free tours.
