Each step was a step back in history the story of the only complete walled city in europe with its original cannon guns and history of how they came to be there

We have been to Derry many times from tipperary as we have family in the area. We noticed the tour of the walls on television a few weeks back and decided to try it while there last weekend. We were not disappointed. It was such a brilliant experience and so informative. We learned as much in that hour from our guide John than we had learned in all our trips up two Derry before that. What a gem of a city and these walls are a fantastic center point. Fantastic history. Fantastic views and a lovely free cup of tea or coffee after the tour.

If you're in Derry, you can't miss the city walls and you have to make time to walk all the way around them. We did the full walk, with stops at all of the information stations and sites, in probably about 2 hours. The views from the wall are terrific and the history is very interesting.

Having only been in Londonderry once in the past, a visit to the historic walls were on my agenda, now that the city is peaceful.
Now, I have been to many a walled fortification or town/city in my time and have clambered over many a rampart. I have to say that these walls are second to none, and give both an interesting historical insight, and a great of the city. I had no idea they were so massive.

Funny how you doesn't appreciate things that are on your own doorstep sometimes.
I have made a not to go back with visitors to see them again.

The only complete city walls in the UK - a must-see. A great starting point for learning about the history of the city
