LISBURN City Council's Tourist Information staff recently undertook a
'Georgian Gems — Hidden Secrets of a County Down Village' familiarisation
tour in Hillsborough to show off the delights of the Georgian village to 24
tourism staff and accommodation providers from across Northern Ireland.
The tour was designed to ensure staff members would be able to provide visitors to their areas with accurate information on Hillsborough, so that when they visit they will not be disappointed.
The Deputy Mayor of Lisburn, Councillor Brian Heading, joined the familiarisation tour to welcome the tourism staff from across the Province.
Councillor Jenny Palmer, Chairman of the Council's Economic Development Committee, said: "It is great news for the Council that the Northern Ireland Tourist Board selected this project for funding." The tourism staff who attended saw around Hillsborough Castle and its Secret Garden, the Courthouse, the Fort, and the Georgian architecture that is evident throughout the village including St Malachi's Parish Church.
