Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

New Lanark World Heritage Site is an ideal spot for wildlife watching and woodland walks with the family, especially since it is the gateway to the famous Falls of Clyde. There is also a great Visitor centre, which tells the story of the cotton mill village of New Lanark.

The visitor centre has a number of exhibition areas, plus a number of attractions, which tell you more about the village and it's management by a social pioneer called Robert Owen. Travel back in time with the Annie Mcleod Experience dark ride, featuring a mill girl who tells the story of her life and what it was like in 1820. You can also visit Robert Owen's schoolroom and discover how he created the first Infant School in the world! There is a chance for the kids to dress up as schoolchildren from Annie's, and there is a great Interactive gallery that provideds a multisensory experience of colour sound and light.

The Millworker's House exhibits give you a chance to see how villagers lived in the 1820s and the 1930s, so you can compare how they have changed. You can also visit the Owen's house, the only one in the village to have more rooms than it had people! The Village Store is definitely worth a look, as you can buy delicious ‘Beat the Cheat' game!

For a great view of the whole village, visit the Roof Garden and viewing platform, which has over 70 different plants, animal scultpures and a water feature.
