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.

Along the way, you’ll also see:
