Derry (Londonderry) in Northern Ireland, UK is one of the finest remaining examples of an old city wall that is still standing today. It was built over 400 years ago and and largely been restored after years of erosion and battles over the centuries. You really do feel like you are in "Old Europe" when you are here and there are great views to be had and of course some great photos. They have also restored the original cannons that were used to fight off many attackers in the 17th century. It has 4 original gates and 2 added later that are still in use today!
