    Please Note: Some online route planners and Sat Nav devices give directions to enter New Lanark via The Beeches. However this country track is NOT recommended for vehicles. Please follow brown road signs which will direct you to New Lanark via Hyndford Road.

    Parking is not permitted in the Village unless you are a blue badge holder or guest of the hotel. New Lanark is a living and working village, and supporting our villagers and local environment are very important to us.

    Day visitors to the site will need to park in the visitor car park at the top of the hill. This is charged at £3 per day. The car park is managed by a 3rd party company and New Lanark is not involved with the daily operation. If you believe you have been charged in error, please use the formal process as detailed on the charge. Or contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
