A Perfect Day at New Lanark
There’s so much to do and see at New Lanark and that’s before you’ve even entered the Visitor Attraction. From scenic walks along the Falls of Clyde to a dining experience in the New Lanark Mill Hotel, there’s so much to do.
Here’s just a few of the highlights to make the most of your day at New Lanark.
When it comes to food we are all about simple and delicious dishes with the main focus on using quality ingredients. You can enjoy our Heritage Afternoon Tea for a light and refreshing lunch of soup, sandwiches and light bites, or order from our full A La Carte menu featuring the very best in Scottish Produce.
We know how important it is to walk off a good meal, but nobody said you can’t enjoy ice cream while you do it. Fortunately, we make our own ice cream at New Lanark in a range of delicious flavours, from our award-winning Vanilla, to Wild Strawberry and even Irn-Bru, grab a scoop or two from the Mill Café and enjoy a relaxing walk by the Clyde.
Did you know that we spin our own wool? Produce our own hydro-electricity? That Robert Owen introduced an 8 hour work day for workers at New Lanark? These are just some of the interesting and exciting things you can learn about on one of our daily guided tours. Covering everything from worker’s lives in Victorian Britain, hydro-electricity production and textile manufacturing, it’s a great way to explore New Lanark and learn as you go.
New Lanark is situated amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland and the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve is one of Scotland’s most beautiful woodland walks. Discover badgers, falcons and otters or simply take in the spectacular views of the Falls.
Whew, that might seem like a whole day’s worth of activities and we’ve barely touched on the Visitor Attraction, and that’s OK. If you Gift Aid the cost of your admission, you can get an Unlimited Ticket to New Lanark, meaning for a whole year, you can come back as many times as you like to discover, explore and experience everything this unique UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer.
