Things to do

Begin your family adventure by exploring the ancient city walls, treasured as one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe. As you wander along the walls, stop at St. Columb's Cathedral for an enriching cultural and educational experience. This magnificent 17th-century building is sure to captivate both children and adults.

Take a leisurely stroll across the Peace Bridge, a landmark that connects the city's two sides over the River Foyle. The views from the bridge make for fantastic family photos, and kids will enjoy dashing along the uniquely curved structure.

The park's River Ness also provides a scenic backdrop for picnics and relaxation amidst the natural beauty of Londonderry.

When to visit

Londonderry shines as a family destination throughout the year, offering unique experiences in every season. Spring (late March to early June) and autumn (September to October) are particularly lovely, with pleasant weather and stunning natural beauty providing the perfect backdrop for family holidays in the city.

May and September are the best months to visit Londonderry specifically, offering milder temperatures without the peak summer crowds. While the warmest months (June, July, and August) also see the most rainfall, there's still plenty to do indoors and out for families. As always, it's advised to plan your family holiday around school breaks to avoid fines or disruptions to your child's education.
