Things To Do
Bishop’s Gate Hotel is ideally located within the historic city walls in the heart of Derry City’s Cathedral Quarter providing the perfect base to explore Derry’s iconic tourist landmarks including the historic Walls, St. Columb’s Cathedral, The Guildhall, The Tower Museum and the Peace Bridge.
A shopper’s paradise, Bishop’s Gate Hotel is a stone’s throw from the city’s main shopping district, Foyleside Shopping Centre & Richmond Shopping Centre. Also on the hotel’s doorstep are the Millennium Forum and the Playhouse theatres which offer an exciting programme of events.
Steeped in history, Derry is the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest Walled Cities in Europe. Named by Lonely Planet as the fourth best city to visit in 2013 and awarded the first ever UK City of Culture in 2013, Derry’s diversity and vibrancy makes it a destination with something for everyone.
