Description

Portaferry Visitor Information Centre is located in the grounds of Portaferry Castle.

Welcoming staff will be delighted to help you make the most of your visit - so take advantage of their local knowledge and the wide range of free brochures and leaflets available on local attractions, events and activities to make your visit a memorable one.

Situated beside Portaferry Castle, a 16th century tower house overlooking the Narrows of scenic Strangford Lough, and a short walk from the town centre, the visitor information centre provides you with local and national visitor information. Staff can help you plan your day out, short break or holiday in the area and offer information and advice for the next leg of your journey.

Buy tickets for many local events including Experience Ards and North Down Tours or pick up a souvenir in the well-stocked shop.

The centre is also home to the Loft Gallery and the established 'Art in the Loft' exhibition series showcasing the work of local artists, craftspeople and makers from the borough and beyond.

During July and August, the Centre hosts a series of family fun activities each Saturday afternoon so come along and join in the fun for free! Lift access is available to the upper floor.
