Historic Site
New Lanark World Heritage Village was originally a cotton mill village founded in 1786, and today you can see most of the buildings as they would have looked in the 18th century as a result of restoration work. In the visitor center, learn about the rich history of the village and the life of the mill manager and social pioneer, Robert Owen. Wander the historic streets and imagine how people lived and worked in Owen’s time. Take the Annie McLeod experience ride, where the ‘ghost’ of a mill girl takes you on a journey. Head up to the Roof Garden and enjoy views of the village and the surrounding scenery. Have a bite to eat at the cafe or make use of one the many picnic spots around the village.

  • Once more, the ticket is very expensive for the visit. The founder is respectable, but the obligatory stop in the cafeteria and gift shop is unpleasant.
