Derry is a city that inspires many images, often conflicting. Its beauty and unique character have long been celebrated, but its complex, bloody history has also been well documented through the centuries. This book tells the fascinating story of Derry, in words and pictures, from the sixth century to the present day.

Part one explores the history of Derry through key events, including the founding of the early Christian monastery, the first English invasion, the Siege of Derry, the events leading to the rechristening of the city Londonderry, emigration, the war years and the violent conflicts and Troubles of the twentieth century.

Part two visits Derry’s most interesting buildings, landmarks, attractions and vistas, old and new, including the City Walls, Free Derry Wall, Guildhall, Apprentice Boys’ Memorial Hall, St Columb’s Cathedral, Museum of Free Derry, Tower Museum, Ebrington, Nerve Centre, the Playhouse and Cultúrlann Uí Chanánin.
