I don’t think that you can get a more or less clear idea what the City Walls are until you see them. This is indeed a city wall on top of which is a fairly wide pedestrian way. Climbing the walls and walking a full circle is an absolute must for a visitor! Walls are intact from ~17th century and enclose a small historic area in the city centre. From various points, the wall offers some of the best views on Derry city, including the Bogside. Along the way, there are multiple plates with descriptions of important events and history. Fine weather is, of course, an important pre-requisite to make your wall experience enjoyable and memorable.

Walking the Derry walls is the first thing a visitor to the city should do. The walls are great in themselves, but the tour gives you an overview of the city, the different neighbourhoods, and where things are located. If you do a Derry city walking tour you get the hole history of the city as well, and all the main sites of historical events can be seen from the walls.

I enjoyed walking the city walls and the signs along the way telling me key facts covering hundred of years were very well done.

In some of the steep bits I was only half joking when I said that I wished they'd install a moving walkway there. Great views across the city and a wonderful way to learn about and understand the city at the same time.

No visit to Derry would be complete without a tour of the walls - there's just so much history to be discovered.
