Ireland

Derry

It’s hard to imagine today, but this beautiful walled city on the western border of Northern Ireland has a turbulent story behind it. Derry’s role in the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, the Irish War of Independence and the Troubles is marked across the city in the form of street murals, ancient fortifications and the iconic Peace Bridge which stretches over the River Foyle – connecting the two divided sides. The Tower Museum is the ideal spot for learning about the area’s history, complete with a bird’s eye view of where it all took place. Step even further back into time just seven miles northwest of Derry, where you’ll find the hilltop fort Grianan of Aileach – one of Gaelic Ireland’s royal sites. Explore the city’s burgeoning live music scene by taking a stroll around the centre of town, which is awash with lively riverside pubs and bars.
