Visited Derry City (Londonderry) in northern Ireland last week and it is a cool city. Great people, good modern city, but they have kept the old part of the city with its complete city walls (16th centre).
To get my bearings, I usually take the Hop-on-Hop-off sightseeing bus tours, and usually they give you a quick overview of your surroundings, then you can go and explore more in detail. Hovever, I thought that it was not really worth doing the hop on busses as Derry is quite a compact city. You really can just walk around most of the city. Walking on the actual old city walls was a great experience. You can find most of the interesting stuff by just walking around. The cost of the Sightseeing bus was 12.50 stirling, which, for just 7 stops was too much. City walls, Guildhall , and ebrington square are all walkable. You could hop in a taxi for far less and get to the now famous Bogside with the wall-high IRA and UVF murals.
