Derry-Londonderry Away Day
In 2013, the city of Derry-Londonderry became the UK’s first ever City of Culture and the Lonely Planet guide ranked it fourth among the world’s top city destinations.
Travel there from Enniskillen on the A32 and A5.

Children may wish to spend the morning Go-karting at the Castlefin X-treme Karting centre where cadet karts are also available.

Turn off the A5 towards Lifford at the Strabane roundabout. Here you will see artist Maurice Harron’s arresting sculpture known locally as ‘The Tinnies’. Then take the N15 to Castlefin. The fully outdoor racing track which covers 9 acres provides the thrills of hair pins, full-length straights and sweeping bends.

Notable features include stained glass windows offered by London guilds to commemorate the city’s craftsmen - and traders, the carpenters and ironmongers, the glaziers and painters. There are chandeliers of Czechoslovakian cut glass, and in the great hall, the roof is made from mahogany panels fr
