With the honour of “City Of Culture 2013” bestowed upon Derry this year, it is inevitable that we will likely see more tourists coming to the city. Included in the city of culture will be a wide variety of theatre, music, dance, visual arts, literature and film events to promote the prestigious title given to the city this year. These events will go hand in hand with what Derry already has to offer tourists on an on-going basis. Some of the well known attractions in the Derry area include: Free Derry Corner, Ebrington Square, St Columb’s Cathedral, Grianan of Aileach, Prehen House, The Derry City Walls, The Tower Museum, The River Foyle, St. Columb’s Park, The Guildhall, Brooke Park and Enagh Lough to name but a few.
