    Walking the Derry Walls is a wonderful experience and well worth a visit. We didn't choose to go on a tour but found lots of interesting information points at several places along the walls. A must do!!

    A warm welcome from the families of those who were gunned down awaits you as you enter the museum. It's an interesting thought provoking experience

    Epic guided tour by Siobhan. I would have loved a wee go on the organ! This place is fascinating. A lot to take in. Good for adults

    Visited to see the Peace Heroines exhibit, also went around the main Story of Derry and La Trinidad Valencera exhibitions.

    You need a fair bit of time to do these justice, there’s lots to read and loads of audios visual items. Each exhibition was well presented and very informative. At the end there is an interactive room for children which looked very entertaining and educational.

    There are super views from the top of the tower which you access on route to the La Trinidad Valencera exhibition.

    There is also an item on the Spitfire which was excavated in 2011 as part of the BBC dog for WWII programme.

    There is an entrance fee, but the value for money is well worth it.

    It was faster to walk across the bridge to the train than to wait for the bus. The bridge lit up at night is really pretty. The gentle curves of the bridge make it all that more interesting. It's an easy walk and the views towards Derry/Londonderry are great.

    Super informative and helpful staff that helped me make a short visit to the sea on public transport. Great recommendation for a Bloody Sunday historic tour by Bogside Historic Tours. Nice books and souvenirs as well.

    I went in search of my great great grandfather's grave. I approached a group of men working and noticed many oglaigs including Martin mcguiness so it was the republican plot. They were very helpful pointing me in the right direction for my great great grandfather's grave and a cousins who was killed in the 80s. I found the graves then walked to the city centre via free derry corner which with its murals and memorials evokes the areas tumultuous past

    Great way to see the compact centre from above and closeby, but the first hand information on recent troubles was very intresting and moving and is key for this experience. We arrived an hour later then agreed and Terry was really kind and waited for us (last tour of the day), very much appreciated and exceptional service !

    Really makes you think about local history and it’s links to international current historic events. Try and park in town centre as parking is limited.

    The art is a must see. . The detail of it is unreal and there are plaques with information on the pictures, some very sad but good to get a insight to the history of derry.

    My visit was highlighted by the staff at the cathedral the day I visited. These staff (who are volunteers and parishioners) gave me a tour of the cathedral and chapter house, and one even took time to show me the United States flag that had been donated by US Sailors and Marines during their stay in Londonderry/Derry during World War II. The churchyard is also beautiful, and my wife spent hours taking pictures of its natural beauty.

    We had the pleasure of working with the Millennium Forum to hold a large scale event on 16th & 17th January 2023 - Autism: Belonging & Inclusion in Youthwork Conference. During planning and in the run up to the event communication was prompt and nothing was too much trouble for Paul and the team. Over the two days we found the staff to be super helpful, friendly and more than attentive to the events team as well as speakers/facilitators and delegates. The catering provided was first class as was the technical support. Everyone went above and beyond and we would like to thank management and staff of the Forum for making it such an enjoyable and positive experience for all involved.
