The native people are so friendly and welcoming and are all so proud of their origonal " roots" plenty to do and see from cobbled streets to old style tea rooms and craft shops but with a city buzz about it ! Definately worth a visit... More

Whenever I am in Derry I pay a visit to the information centre. Not only will you get good advice about the city but also about the surroundings. Apart from the usual free brochures and flyers you will find interesting books, post cards and various other material.

This is where you should start your visit. Parking in a garage is nearby if you drove via car. They will get you oriented with a map. Some tours start from there.
