The Guildhall is a must if you are visiting Derry. It is right in the centre of the city and the architecture is beautiful even if that isn't your thing.

We visited during the Halloween week and got to see all the celebrations that had been put on. This is a beautiful building that has witnessed some of the worst of the troubles and survived. A must visit if in Derry.

The interactive history lesson was presented in a most interesting way. We appreciated the benches on which we could rest while watching and reading. The cafe offered delicious scones and hot beverages.

Recommend you give the Guildhall a visit if in Derry you won’t be disappointed and it’s of interest like many other places.

Interesting exhibition on the Plantation of Ulster, which I knew nothing about. It explains the earlier history of Derry. The building is beautiful with stunning stained glass window. Well worth a visit.

I think as I can remember there is a throne on the 2nd floor where you can sit and there is a cape/robe you can put on. Possibly? Ask the lady at reception desk.
