“Serving to educate, connect and inspire visitors on the industrial Heritage and Orangeism of Portadown”

Portadown Heritage Tours is a new community based initiative developed to promote Portadown and the surrounding area through tours and published content.

The organisation was formed through Carleton Street Community Development Association and their success in obtaining a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant.

The Volunteers have been trained to World Host standard to deliver the tours. The volunteers are made up of local individuals with a keen interest in the Heritage and Culture of the town. The majority of the volunteers are members of the Loyal Orange Institution.
