The Channel 4 sitcom has firmly put the city of Derry on the global map, with fans of the show located as far away as the United States and New Zealand.

Hoping to tap into the city’s growing tourism industry, the Derry Girls food tour will showcase the best of the city’s eateries, including some iconic treats that feature in the show.
