About the tour

This hour-long walking tour in Derry retraces pieces of the original march and also visits places where the dead and wounded fell. The Bogside History Tour will examine the political and social repercussions of the Bloody Sunday Massacre. The tour will pass ‘The Museum of Free Derry’ and conclude at the Bloody Sunday monument within sight of the Free Derry corner and beneath the city walls of Derry.

The Bogside (Irish: Taobh an Bhogaigh) is a neighbourhood outside the city walls. Here travelers can see the large gable-wall murals by the Bogside Artists, Free Derry Corner and the Gasyard Féile (an annual music and arts festival that is held in a former gas yard) are popular tourist attractions. This area has been a focus point for many of the events of the Troubles; in 1969, a fierce three-day battle known as the Battle of the Bogside became a starting point of the Troubles.

This tour's itinerary includes:

● Derry from 1968

● Civil Rights Association

● Internment without Trial;

● The background to the march;

● The day of the march and the killings;

● The Widgery Inquiry and the cover up;

● The Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign;

● The Saville Inquiry

The tour will finish at The Museum of Free Derry. Travelers who wish to enter The Museum of Free Derry can inquire with me about obtaining a pass to the museum for us to visit.

The tour has a suggested price of £6 or £10 Inc. ticket to Museum of Free Derry
