If I promise to walk it some day does driving count? It looks fantastic from the car, Craigavon to Foyle, and a walk on the Peace Bridge, and a walk along the riverside when the Tall Ships were in town. An interesting city with interesting people, and on a sunny day well worth doing all of the sights.

We walked a total of 13 miles, including across both bridges, and the nearby park. Plenty of scenery, seabirds, boats and points of interest. All very well marked and maintained.

It is such a nice route to run by the river. It so nice on any weather for me. The new track beside the railway is pretty nice to run by. Take a break under the Foyle bridge hear the cars above and take in that view.

This is a great walk. There are actually three bridges in Derry and I would recommend doing them all. Great CIty on a river and you get a real insight to all aspects of this quiet river city.

A great urban walk with a semi-rural feel. If you're feeling fit enough you can walk around the historic walls of Derry/Londonderry too.

This is a lovely walk by the Foyle river, and it's about 6 miles if you do the full circle. If you drive to the walk, there are a few places to park, namely Sainsbury's and two lay-by's on the Foyle bridge. There are a few inclines, but nothing too serious, and it's a good work out. I started at... More

Often enough I would walk/run this route as its a challenging 6.4 mile distance of incline and declining streets. During the great weather of the summer it is a pleasant walk/run but I wouldn't recommend it in the Winter as the high winds can be fierce when crossing the foyle bridge and in the rain you are very exposed.

The traditional walk of the 2 bridges changed forever in 2011 when the Peace Bridge opened. Not only is this a lovely walk, its also a great fitness method, and sociable way of meeting other people
