Foyle Port Marina
Go for a quayside walk and discover the moorings of local history
Welcome to the historic city of Derry/Londonderry.
This self-guided audio walking tour focuses on pivotal moments in the city's history, including its emergence as a shipbuilding hub, emigration to North America to escape the Irish Potato Famine, and the role of its port during World War II. We’ll start at Peace Bridge and walk along the River Foyle to the quayside emigration sculptures, before looping back to our starting point.
Along the way, you’ll also see:
• Foyle Marina, which is the base for the Foyle Festival and the biennial Clipper Round the World Yacht Race
• The campus of Magee College, which dates back to 1865
• Shirt factories that shaped modern business
