Why you should go
This cultural gem of a city is the ideal destination if you’re looking to escape the norms of everyday life. Whether you fancy sampling the city’s gorgeous scenery, buzzing social surroundings or find out why this region was voted UK City of Culture in 2013, Derry should definitely be next on your list to visit.
Believe it or not, the most popular attraction in Derry-Londonderry is its famous historic walls. Playing host to an array of museums, galleries and rich literary history, The Walls are listed as one of the ‘World’s 1001 Historic Sites you Must See before you Die (UNESCO)’. Infused with around 1450 years of history, Derry is actually one of the only cities in both Ireland and the British Isles to be completely walled. Gorgeous architecture fills every nook and cranny of the city and the fantastic vibe is encapsulated in its countless arts programs, cathedrals, pubs and restaurants. For the creatives amongst us, the Playhouse Theatre is perfect for catching a performance from local or international artists.
After a day of taking in the sights, it might be time to kick back in one of the city’s many pubs or restaurants. You’re also spoilt for choice when it comes to bars and nightclubs, so make sure you save some energy for dancing through to the early hours.
Where you should stay
The city centre has always got something going on and you can choose from a number of hotels which offer river views. If you’re thinking of heading out of the city, there’s a whole host of accommodation in Derry’s picturesque countryside or coastal areas.
With so many things to do on your visit to Derry, you might want to prioritise some of these:
