New Lanark Visitor Centre
UNESCO World Heritage Site New Lanark is something of a living museum. The former industrial community, famous for its utopian socialist ideal, is now home to around 250 residents and a Visitor Centre that details the village's fascinating history.
New Lanark was originally founded in 1786 by cotton mill owner David Dale to house his workers. The mills became famous for their utopian socialist ideals and ran until 1968. The village was bought by a conservation trust in 1975, restored and converted into a museum, and has since became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
