I walked the city wall on my visit to Londonderry last Saturday. It was a really interesting walk. There was these quizzes explaining the history of it all so very educational.

Lovely walk around the city and an excellent way to discover the cities history. Be prepared there are a few hills and it may be a little miserable in the bad weather. Although when the weather is good the walk is brilliant!

On a sunny day, you can see so much! It's a great historical and beautiful walk! We walked self-guided, but there are a few tours. I also recommend walking the mural tours too!

The historic walls of Derry remain intact to this day, having withstood a major siege in the 17th. century and recent years of troubles in the city. Visitors can walk round the entire length, just over a mile, and get a unique perspective on the landscape and buildings, particularly the cathedral dating back to the early 17th. century, and the...

Be sure to check out these moving murals if stopping in Derry. They offer a glimpse into the turbulent history of Northern Ireland and are some fantastic pieces of art as well. Each scene depicts different events related to the uprising, beginning in 1916 and continuing through to present day. If you're a history buff or simply want to learn... More

Weather is a big part of how enjoyable this walk really is and how much you get out of it. Having done it twice now, once on a great day and once when it was drizzling I have to I got far more out of it on a sunny day. The views out from the various sections of the ways... More

This is a must-do in Derry-Londonderry. The walls circle the city and from them you can absorb the mix of old and new Derry. This city has such a rich and incredibly complex history, and you get to read and sense it there on these ancient walls. They are very spacious to walk on. The whole circumference is about a...
