About the Bundle
In this series of five tours, local guide David Douglas from Derrie Danders Walking Tours, takes you on a series of walks all starting from the conveniently located Visitor Information Centre on Waterloo Place. The city is fairly compact and easy to navigate on foot. You will discover the historic 400 year Walled City centre and the story of the plantation of Ulster and the Great Siege of Derry (1688/89). Take a visit to the Waterside (East Bank of the city) and learn about its naval (in particular the Second World War), military and railway history. Go south and ramble along the riverside and learn more about the city’s maritime, ulster scots emigration and industrial heritage (shirt factories). Turn north and walk the quayside and learn more about shipbuilding, famine emigration and education. Then finally go west and explore sacred sites (St Columba), and murals and memorials from the more recent period of the Troubles and the resulting peace process.
