Derry also known as Londonderry is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in Northern Ireland. It is a highly well preserved walled city that played key roles in the course of modern history. In 2013, it holds the honour of being the UK's first City of Culture. A rather off-beat place it lies still undiscovered by tourist. If you wish to escape from the tourist rut and bask in some European history then Londonderry is a good bet.
