Nice walk around the walls of Londonderry. Not too far for young kids to walk. Good views from the higher parts of the walls. Not good if you have mobility issues as there's lots of steps and steep bits. Well worth the walk.

A friend who lives in the area showed us around the walls. Great history and views. Considering this is a free thing to do in the city this is a must do.

Great spot right on the border between the North and Republic of Ireland. Londonderry was one of the most turbulent areas during the Troubles. Got to go on a walking tour of the city run by a local lad who grew up during the Troubles and really knew the history of the town right back to when it was first... More

Walking the walls here brings you back in time. This is the last remaining completely walled city in Ireland. The view of the city from the walls brings a different perspective than simply walking in the city. We wish we would have had more time to explore. Great history.
