Derry Visitor Attractions
The Guildhall, Guildhall Street, in Derry located just outside Derry City old Walls, was financed by the Honourable the Irish Society. It is a worthy example of Gothic style architecture in this building. Used mainly as an administrative centre when opened in the 1900's and today it still retains this function along also with a newly introduced Tourist Interactive section providing lots of Derry history and a cafe. The Guildhall in Derry is worthy for its architectural features along with its many fine stained glass windows depicting the history of Derry City and the Guildhall great organ which has over 3000 pipes.
