Derry Londonderry is now a city of peace, but has a troubled past. On this walk you’ll explore places of historical significance alongside some of the natural beauty of the area
Our walk starts at the sombre Bloody Sunday Memorial Monument – a reminder of the events that took place in the Bogside area of the city on 30th January 1972. Take a moment to pause and honour those who lost their lives on that fateful day. From here head towards the River Foyle, crossing the Peace Bridge that symbolises the commitment to peace and harmony that this city now holds dear.
Once you’re on the opposite bank of the river, head into St Columb’s Park. It’s a gem of an urban oasis that offers a moment of respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. Our walk takes us on a loop through the park – admire the greenery, perhaps hug a tree and keep an eye out for local wildlife that call this place home.
