The walk around the walls of Derry was an excellent orientation to the city and to the history of the region. Information panels are located at a number of locations along the wall and recount the ancient as well as the more recent history of Derry. Parking is available just outside the walls - we parked near the Ferryquay Gate for just a couple of pounds. These were some of the best walls we have walked in the UK or Ireland. The only disappointment was the growth of several businesses and malls along the southwest corner of the old city that have encroached upon the wall to a degree. Otherwise it's a great way to spend an hour or two and get great views of Derry.
