Access

New Lanark Visitor Centre welcomes everyone. However, the location of the village in a steep-sided valley beside the Falls of Clyde, though picturesque, is not ideal terrain for wheelchair-users and visitors with mobility needs. The village has been made as wheelchair-friendly as possible; however please download our mobility needs information guide to help you plan your visit. Alternatively, call us on 01555 661345 for more information.

Parking

The main Visitor Centre car park is located at the top of a fairly steep hill. Parking spaces in the village itself are limited.

Coaches: If the distance is too great for passengers to travel from the main car park, the driver is permitted to drop off (and pick up) passengers with mobility needs down in the village. The coach must return to park in the main car park for the duration of the visit. Coaches can usually find space to turn around in the village at the turning point by the Counting House or in the Hotel car park.

Blue Badge holders may park in the village in designated parking spaces:

  • There are four in front of the Institute: Visitor Centre main entrance 
  • There are four at the front entrance of the New Lanark Mill Hotel.

Non-badge holders who are unable to negotiate the footpath back to the car park may also park in the village but, where possible, the driver should drop off (and pick up) passengers and return to park in the main car park for the duration of the visit. This avoids congestion in the village, especially at peak times. We must always maintain access for emergency vehicles. At quieter times there should not be any problem in finding a parking space.
