My son has just completed some course work on the Troubles in Northern Ireland. As we walked up Rossville Street and the Free Derry Corner he was able to explain a good overview of the events on Bloody Sunday and from the spot where it all began. An Excellent memorial of times past.

It's worth the visit if you're walking the walled the city. They're located close to each other and gives you an interesting perspective. I would do a walking tour of some sort to get a better understanding of that corner, the history, and the British garrisons situated facing the bogside

It's literally a nice view. Some may debate the view politically, but even as an outsider looking in, it's still interesting history with a nice view to match. You'll see some neat posters from time to time.

I am a huge fan of History and this is a must see. I would recommend that one read up on Ireland's recent history to put relevance to this area of Derry. Many murals and the Bloody Sunday memorial are in this area.

overrated. Not much to see here. Much else to see in Derry. The murals are OK. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

With a Palestinian flag raised above it, this gable end still stands though the houses around it have been knocked down long ago. A lasting symbol of what Derry was like in the bad old days, thankfully no more.

Although of recent historical interest, we found this area of Londonderry intimidating and frightening. It is very sad that today's generation cannot get over their history and learn to get along with each other. We are A-political and realise that both sides in the troubles did terrible things. But surely it is time for the sake of future generations for... More

Pop by in the car for a look. Amazing murals depicting the struggle and oppression caused by the British.

Best is to walk at your own pace. Just a block away from the Bloody Sunday Memorial and the Bogside Murals. If not able to walk it on your own, then book a taxi or small tour.
