“History still standing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

The oldest building in the city is a great place to visit. Free entry, and you're allowed to walk about this historic building and chat to staff there. Essential part of a city visit.

A very important historical site for Derry. This cathedral is steeped in history with some very interesting artifacts and stories. Well worth going out of youor way to visit, followed by St augustines church not more than 300 metres away.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

you can actually see Rev George Walkers sword in this museum! an amazing place to bathe in the history of Londonderry,the actual cannon ball that landed in the yard of this church demanding surrender is on display.A treasure trove of learning and history for discovering the history of Irelands very own "Alamo". How a couple of hundred men fought off an army many times multiple their own.the 13 apprentice boys are actually buried here in a beautiful memorial befitting their Victory over the Catholics.A must see when in Londonderry!
