    Explore, Engage, Inspire

  • Group Visits
Looking for a group visitor attraction that will deliver a truly memorable experience? Bring your group to New Lanark World Heritage Site

Discover Scotland’s hidden past at one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Explore an 18th century cotton mill village sitting in a beautiful location alongside the picturesque River Clyde, learn about the fascinating history of New Lanark at our award winning visitor Centre and attractions, and enjoy opportunities to eat at our cafe or restaurant, and browse our beautiful gift shop. We recommend at least two hours for a visit, but we can tailor a visit to suit your group's shcedule. You can easily spend a day exploring all there is to see and do, or or stay overnight in our 4 star hotel , self-catering waterhouses, or Wee Row Hostel. For those on a very tight schedule, we offer an express 'meal-stop'. While your group is enjoying their visit, we’ll look after the coach driver. Information for school and education groups is provided in our learning section. 

  • Group Tours

    Founded in 1785 with a focus on philanthropy, education and the welfare of the mill workers, New Lanark became a model for industrial communities that was to spread across the world in the 19th and 20th centuries. Groups can see how villagers lived, learned and worked with a visit to Robert Owen’s School for Children, millworkers’ housing and Robert Owen’s own house. There’s an opportunity to see historic working textile machinery, and take the ‘Annie McLeod Experience’, a fascinating ‘dark ride’ that tells the eye-opening story of a child millworker.

    You can choose to combine a group guided tour or seminar with entry to our Visitor Centre or simply come for a self-led visit. Enjoy spectacular views of the village, river and surrounding forests from our roof garden, then take a woodland walk to see the famous ‘Falls of Clyde’ waterfalls.


  • Group Dining

    Choose our informal Mill Cafe, or the comfortable Mill One Restaurant 

    For groups that want to eat together we offer a choice of three set packages in the Mill Café. The New Lanark Mill Hotel, located in the village, also offers informal dining and can cater for groups of 20 to 150 in the Mill One Restaurant. 

    For a free-flow visit the café offers a good selection of snacks, soup, hot meals and hot and cold drinks available at the self-serve counter. For a special treat, don’t miss our award-winning New Lanark Ice Cream, made in the village.


  • Group Accommodation

    Stay overnight, or longer

    The New Lanark Mill Hotel, a 4-star contemporary hotel located in the heart of the village, is popular with groups who use it as a base from which to visit Glasgow and Edinburgh and explore the Scottish Borders. The 38-bedroom hotel, located within what was once Mill Number 1, has lifts to all floors, a welcoming lounge, leisure suite and restaurant. It’s also popular as an overnight stop for groups travelling up from England or returning after a Scottish tour. After all, it’s not every day you can wake up in a World Heritage Site. We also have Wee Row Hostel, ideal for school groups, and eight self-catering Waterhouses on the banks of the River Clyde.

Designed to appeal to group travel organisers, coach operators and tour planners on a tight schedule, we’re about 20 minutes from junction 12 on the M74, offering an alternative to the usual refreshment and meal stop-offs.  Choose from an ‘Express’ one-hour meal option or a longer 90-minute option. You can choose any of or group dining packages, and your ‘Meal Stop’ can be taken in the Mill One restaurant at the 4-star New Lanark Mill Hotel.
