Overview
More
Nestled in Lanarkshire's Clyde Valley just 1 hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh, New Lanark World Heritage Site is internationally famous for its historic buildings, beautiful landscape and over 200 years of significant social history. The mill village was founded & built in 1785 by David Dale and Richard Arkwright, and then managed for 25 years from 1800 by the pioneering Robert Owen. New Lanark is now recognised as one of Scotland's six UNESCO World Heritage Sites of 'outstanding universal value' and welcomes over 300,000 site visitors annually. At New Lanark today you can still wonder at the stunning architecture and enjoy the beautiful landscape - but there's a lot more on offer... Visitors can explore the history of the village through the New Lanark Visitor Centre and enjoy stunning woodland walks through the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve to see the famous waterfalls. The Mill Café serves up a range of delicious home baking, hot lunches, tea, coffee and New Lanark Ice Cream. The Mill Shop offers a delightful range of gifts, Scottish produce and New Lanark Wool which is spun on-site using historic textile machinery. Visitors can even wake up in a World Heritage Site by staying at the New Lanark Mill Hotel, Wee Row Hostel or Self-catering Waterhouses which rest on the banks of the River Clyde.

Not many places give you History and Scenery all in the same area. New Lanark has a great back story with Robert Owen's quest to give work and decent homes where families could thrive and be happy. Couple that with modern facilities and a great...More

No, I would give it much more than an hour, we spent 3 hours there and didn't get round the whole village ( although we spent a full hour at the textile exhibition).
