Probably one of the most unique landmarks on the planet, and to the uninitiated, one of the most curious. I would strongly urge any visitor to Derry to visit 'Free Derry' corner, which is just a five minute walk down the hill from Butcher's Gate...More

We had followed along the walls to get to the Free Derry Corner, it's quite easy to spot walking along. The gable wall is located in a busy street but there are zebra crossings. There is some history to the wall in both English and...More

One of the most photographed icons of "The Troubles" in Derry. Situated in the heart of the Bogside what was once the gable end of a house, has become a focal point for many tourists and locals. For many it is a symbol of resistance,...More

Strongly suggest standing in the grassed section in the "middle of the road" to take this in. Should be done as part of the walk of the bogside

Iconic symbol of the "troubles" whatever your allegiance its a pwerful statement, and should be viewed. My hope is that this will endure as a monument to a time, which we that we can move on and learn from.

A must-see when in Derry. Spend the time to learn the history. This area is best seen with a tour guide who can really explain all the political, religious background. Truly a must-see, do not pass this by.
