It’s cosmopolitan, creative and steeped in history, but it’s the unique combination of warmth and wit that makes Derry-Londonderry so special. Stand on the city walls in Derry~Londonderry and you’ll feel it. History is all around you. The very walls beneath you were built over 400 years ago. Look over to the city’s Bogside area and you’ll see history literally written on the walls in those famous murals. Traditional music spills out onto the streets from cosy pubs, museums tell stories of times past and people still celebrate ancient festivals.
