Derry Beaches and Coast

Derry, or Londonderry as it's sometimes known, sits astride the river Foyle and dates back to the 6th Century.

Now it is a modern and busy centre frequented by travellers from all over the world. It is popular as it's a completely walled city and the only of its kind in the United Kingdom.

With over 1450 years of history to draw upon this city has you marvelling at how it survived the Siege of Derry and the Famine, WWI and the Easter Rising, Bloody Sunday and the Civil Rights Marches. From this damaging and bloody past a vibrant and joyful city has risen and occasions are marked by festivals and other events throughout the year that attract tourism and business alike.

Take the Heritage trail and find Cathedrals and Churches, villages, murals and monuments that will reveal parts of this rich tapestry including the landing of Amelia Earhart as she flew solo in 1932!

The county offers lush countryside and superb beaches so walking and bird and wildlife spotting is easy especially near Springwell or Ness Wood Country Park.

Beech Hill Country House is worth exploring too. It's where the Clintons stayed on visits to the country and is set in over 30 acres of stunning nature just outside the city! A perfect spot for afternoon tea.
