Of course, this slice of Northern Ireland has a number of attractions and sites, all rich in culture and history, and all of which can make your trip one to remember.
So, if you’re unsure of what there is to do in Londonderry, read on. Below legendsofthenorth.com have listed just three activities to consider whilst visiting this beautiful city.
‘The People’s Gallery’
Londonderry is home to some of the most stunning and hand-on-heart murals and this outdoor gallery will transport you to the past and connect with the artists on a far deeper level than just at face-value.
