Our Basic Town Tour looks at the town from Plantation through to the Industrial and Commerce History. Visitors have the opportunity to immerse in the heritage of the local buildings. The Tour takes visitors through the buildings of the town with historical significance. Our guides also cover the impressive history of the Waterways and Railways.

As visitors are guided through the historical journey and development of Portadown, they will discover the once thriving market town and its Christian heritage, as we cover the places of worship of a number of denominations. Also, the guides will concentrate on the centre stage of the town with detail on the War Memorial, Saunderson's Statue and the Obelisk.
