New Lanark Visitor Centre

Clyde Valley Tourist Route

Social pioneer Robert Owen envisioned a new way of industrial working when he created New Lanark in the 18th century. He considered the well-being of his cotton mill employees by building good housing on site and providing healthcare and education. Wander the delightful cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and explore the factory and village buildings where the occupants lived and worked. Kids will love visiting the old schoolhouse and taking the Annie McLeod Experience ride back in time to the 1820s.
