Historic Walking Areas · Bridges · History Museums
County Londonderry features numerous scenic riverside settings and several important historical sites. Derry, the county’s biggest city, famous for its ancient defensive walls, served as the UK’s official City of Culture in 2013. The county, steeped in history and proud of its Irish heritage, plays an important role in the cultural revival currently underway in this northern region. Though there’s lots of history to soak up here, the county’s biggest attraction may very well be the locals themselves, well known for their long tradition of witty storytelling. Visit the county’s smaller villages to explore a flourishing music scene, which has found its home in both traditional pubs and trendy new cafes.
