Christian Settlement

St Columba founded the city in the 6th century naming the city 'Doire'. Also known as 'Doire Colmcille' or Derry.


The Plantation Of Ulster

Known as the Plantation - this is the basis of why we have a walled city. Upon building the walls the name of the city was then changed to Londonderry

The longest siege in British military history playing a crucial role in the city's culture today 


World War 2

We were the base for many British , American and Canadian Navy's due to our location near the Atlantic.
