Murals, Tours and Sightseeing

The street murals are on many visitors' must-see list when in Londonderry. This is street art, expressed by the community and adorning gables and walls in housing estates. The murals are personal memories and depictions of recent and past events in the city's political and social history. The murals are on the tourist trail beyond the Walled City of Derry.

The Bogside Artists are the sole creators of the World Famous People's Gallery. Take a unique tour by the Artists themselves and visit their Art Gallery, also called the People's Gallery.

Other tourism hot-spots in Derry~Londonderry include St. Columb’s Cathedral, the River Foyle, Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall, First Derry Presbyterian Church, Guildhall and, of course, the historic walls of Derry. School tours are also available.
