Derry, or Londonderry, is the fourth largest city on the island of Ireland. Some improvements were made to the city when it was awarded the UK City of Culture 2013. It was during this time that the striking Peace Bridge – which crosses the River Foyle – was built. On the west bank of the river lies the old walled city, where you can catch a captivating glimpse of the past.
