  • We wandered into the Guildhall out of curiosity and we were offered a fifteen minute tour for the sum of just £2 each. The lady was very pleasant and very knowledgable.

  • Very pleasantly surprised by the staff of the guildhall. It is free of charge as we walked in. We were greeted well. We were asked to take our time and go around and see the place. The history of dairy city is very well. Depicted photography is not allowed. We were allowed to take pictures of The strained glass work. Very rich with history. It is right outside the row of canyons of the walled City. It is opposite to the peace bridge. Huge row of fountains outside was definitely a good amusement for the kids
  • Beautiful historic building in Derry city, beside the river Foyle and the city walls. It was built in 1890 and is free to visit every day. It's got stunning stained glass windows and a magnificent main hall. There's an exhibition of the city's history, toilet facilities, a lift, disabled ramps and a lovely cafe.
  • Very interesting place,a lot of history.Amazing blond hair lady ( sorry can't remember her name,),a woman who loves her city and share her knowledge with visitors.
  • Beautifully restored to its former glory after the IRA bombs. Welcoming staff and freedom to explore the lovely building and stained glass.
  • Beautiful architecture with exceptional pipe organs. I hope to come back for a concert here at some point. It must be amazing
