Northern Ireland’s second largest city, Londonderry (Derry), is much smaller than Belfast.

Derry (Irish ‘Doire’, for ‘peace of the oaks’), a small community centred around a 6th-century abbey, was rebuilt by British settlers in 1613. Soon, the town granted charters to several London merchant companies to develop the area, ant the official name of the city became Londonderry. This name has never ben fully accepted or used by Catholics, who in general still refer to the city as Derry.

Derry is the only remaining completely Walled City in Ireland.

Stroll up and down its cobbled streets and find out about its history.
