Welcome to New Lanark Visitor Centre
Thinking of visiting New Lanark? Check out our summer 'Quote Robert Owen for a Cone' offer...
The award-winning New Lanark Visitor Centre tells the fascinating story of the cotton mill village of New Lanark which was founded in the 18th century.
New Lanark quickly became known under the enlightened management of social pioneer, Robert Owen. He provided decent homes, fair wages, free health care, a new education system for villagers and the first workplace nursery school in the world! Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, New Lanark has been beautifully restored as a living community, which welcomes visitors from all over the world. Travel back in time on the Annie Mcleod Experience dark ride which features mill girl Annie who magically appears and reveals the amazing story of her life and times in New Lanark in 1820.
Explore the many attractions and exhibition areas of New Lanark Visitor Centre with a passport ticket. Highlights include:
New Lanark World Heritage Site is surrounded by native woodlands and is the gateway to the famous Falls of Clyde: ideal for woodland walks and wildlife spotting at the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve. Look out for wildlife and you may catch a glimpse of kingfishers, otters, deer and badgers or even see the rare peregrine falcons. You can also enjoy the outdoors at New Lanark in our new Clearburn Play and Picnic Area.
