With the historic Walled City of Derry/Londonderry, second city of Northern Ireland, as its hub, Co Derry/Londonderry also takes in some spectacular coastline, mountains, forest parks and lakes. Seaside resorts like Portstewart and Castlerock never lose their attraction and there are many towns and villages, from Limavady to Dungiven, which offer a charming alternative to city life.
The Walled City, kicking on from being the inaugural City of Culture in 2013, is undergoing a dramatic regeneration which is beginning to fulfil its great potential. A cutting edge arts and entertainment scene is matched by fine schools and the acclaimed Magee campus of the University of Ulster. It doesn’t matter where you live in Co Derry/Londonderry, from Coleraine to Draperstown, there’s always heart-stopping scenery within easy reach.
