The city of Derry was granted its first charter in 1613.  Exactly 400 years later, it was recognised as the first UK City of Culture.  This tour, departing Belfast, is a full day’s exploration of the history of this beautiful walled city in the north-west of Northern Ireland.  As we travel north, we will discuss the events in Gaelic Ulster which led King James I to confiscate the northern counties leading to the 17th century Plantation of Ulster.  On arrival in the city, we will begin with morning coffee at Guildhall Square before walking the ancient City Walls.  We will cross the iconic Peace Bridge to enjoy lunch in Ebrington Square - and then there is some free time for exploring the shops, pubs and museums of the maiden city before returning to Belfast via a Georgian country house for afternoon tea.
