First off I have to say that the staff were so friendly. The stain glass windows were amazing and the main hall is well worth a visit.

Beautiful building with a small exhibition you can take at your own pace. Also includes interactive displays and toys for children. I noticed a sensory/quiet room near the reception which was lovely to see. The main hall and organ is exquisite, and regularly opened to...More

We went to the hall after hearing that an old friend now passed away had worked on the stain glass windows in the past. it doesn't take long to go round but we'll worth a look there is a lot of history to take in.

For anyone who loves stained glass this building is just heaven. Such a variety of beautiful panes that reflect the history of the city. There is also an exhibition detailing the history of the city.

We had extra time after our walking tour. We decided to go over to the Guildhall. This is a marvelous free museum. Housed in an old church, the building is just as nice as the exhibits. Loaded with information on the history of Northern Ireland,...More

An absolute must see in Derry. The only disappointment with the stained glass windows was that they were difficult to photograph. The statue of Queen Victoria with damaged hands is a constant reminder of the troubles which affect the area.

I think as I can remember there is a throne on the 2nd floor where you can sit and there is a cape/robe you can put on. Possibly? Ask the lady at reception desk.
