It's hardly surprising that the city's tourist information always prominently features photos of the River Foyle, it does place Derry-Londonderry in a beautiful setting. The river or lough is also an important wetland habitat as a train ride between Bellarena and Derry shows.

We hiked for miles along the river Foyle. There are well maintained pathways extending for miles along both sides. The Foyle bridge is beautiful and accessible to pedestrians. We did a big loop and walked across both the the Peace Bridge and the Foyle Bridge.

A lovely place to walk alongside on a sunny evening. Felt very calm and relaxed after spending a few hours by the river watching the world go by
