For many hundreds of years, Lisburn’s strategic location on the River Lagan made it an important economic hub linking Belfast and Dublin.

The area, now known as the Historic Quarter, was first laid out in the 17th Century.  It falls within a designated Conservation Area, which includes Market Square, Castle Street and Bridge Street.
