Wondering where to take the kids this summer? There are some fantastic family days out right on your doorstep – from historic New Lanark to zoos & pools!
The historic village of New Lanark is the perfect location for a family day out this summer! There’s so much on offer you could easily spend a full day here – from exploring our award-winning Visitor Centre to enjoying a woodland walk to see the famous three ‘Falls of Clyde’ waterfalls!
New Lanark is a cotton-spinning mill village which was founded in 1785 by David Dale & Richard Arkwright. Over 200 years later the village has been recognised as one of Scotland’s 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites of ‘outstanding universal significance’.
The New Lanark Visitor Centre is open 7 days a week, and during the summer holidays we run a programme of craft workshops and daily guided tours. UK Tax payers can ‘GiftAid’ their Visitor Centre admission making it valid for a whole year – meaning you can visit again and again!
