Our coach tour stopped here as it’s in the heart of Derry and has good bathrooms. The brickwork, stained glass and other features are lovely. It’s free to enter. There are rooms with exhibits detailing the history of the city.

Lovely building. Stunning stain glass windows. Couldn't see much of the rooms as it's a working government building, but what we saw was good.

Beautiful building that has survived some turbulent times and thankfully is still standing. The exhibition on the plantation is interesting and you can view the council chamber along with the lovely stained glass windows and many statues.

This town hall has a ton of history of the city of Derry. It was really informative, all free, on the first floor. The upper level has gorgeous stained glass (20th century). Why you have stained glass in a judicial chamber I am not sure,...More

I think as I can remember there is a throne on the 2nd floor where you can sit and there is a cape/robe you can put on. Possibly? Ask the lady at reception desk.
