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.

The Guildhall is a beautifully restored building with a fabulous Organ. The staff were helpfull and friendly (thanks Gerry) and their desire to sell the city was obvious

This stunning building is just outside the fabulous city walls. Dating back to 1890 it has a beautiful hall and stained glass windows, and a massive organ. There is plenty to see with much information of its past history. It defies belief that during the troubles evil morons planted bombs there to destroy something that should instil local pride.

One of our first stops when we visited the NorthWest recently. This attraction is situated near the Peace Bridge and the City Hotel. It is really worth visiting. Just ask for Gerry to give you a tour of the place - he really knows his stuff and is so well informed about the history of the City and the Guildhall.... More

Take time to walk through the history and explore. This building is built like a castle. Helpful staff. We went during a special function for children with disabilities. Security people who were there for the event were very helpful to us (as tourists).

This is a free exhibition. The Guildhall is very beautiful. There is plenty out on display and is very informative. It is well worth a visit. It is across from the peace bridge so very handy to find.

Lovely building and fabulous for a wedding. Loved the free "tour" of the windows which related the history of the city.
