About Londonderry

Northern Ireland's second largest city is a new destination for 2014. Londonderry is the only remaining completely intact walled city in Ireland and one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe. The imposing fortifications form a walkway around the inner city, providing a unique promenade to view the layout of the original town which still preserves its Renaissance style street plan. Londonderry is renowned for its architecture including the 1633 Gothic cathedral of St Columb, the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall and the old courthouse.

There are many museums and sites of interest in and around the city including the Foyle Valley Railway Centre, the Amelia Earhart Centre and Wildlife Sanctuary. There are also many outdoor destinations to visit including St. Columb's Park, Creggan Country Park and the Foyle and Craigavon bridges. If all this activity has made you thirsty, it's a good idea to seek out a traditional Irish pub to enjoy a Guinness. Waterloo Street has watering holes in abundance so is an excellent stop off point for visitors.
