Walking in DERRY

LONDONDERRY / Northern Ireland (UK)

Derry~Londonderry is the second city of Northern Ireland after Belfast. On the island of Ireland it is the fourth largest city (after Dublin, Belfast and Cork). The city’s name comes with two versions with as unionists preferring the longer name, and nationalists the shorter “Derry” which is more common these days.

Derry/Londonderry is located on the River Foyle. The ancient defensive walls are the most complete in Ireland so we start our tour at the Bishop’s Gate - South of the city center.

First we check out the city walls and walk downhill towards the center with the St Columb’s Cathedral on the way. We pass through the Millenium Forum and see the Derry Girls mural, which is an attraction of the city.

We see the different parts of the city with the West Bank, walk a bit more ontop of the city walls and generally head towards the river. It’s a windy day in autumn in Northern Ireland when we reach the Guildhall (town hall).

Finally we cross the River Foyle via the Peace Bridge. On the other side we have a good view over Derry~Londonderry as we end our walking tour.
