Getting here...

New Lanark is located less than an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh along a beautiful scenic route, making it ideally situated as a destination between both cities - or as a central point for exploring the rest of central Scotland. We are also within close proximity to other well-known visitor attractions including: Chatelherault Country Park, Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life, The National Museum of Rural Life and the David Livingstone Centre.

By Car/Coach: Postcode for Sat Nav: ML11 9BY. New Lanark is one mile south of Lanark and less than an hour’s drive from Glasgow (M74/A72) and Edinburgh (A70). From the south, the village is 30 minutes from M74 Junction 13/Abington.


Accessibility & Parking

New Lanark World Heritage Site welcomes everyone. However, the location of the village in a steep sided valley beside the Falls of Clyde, though picturesque, is not ideal terrain for wheelchair-users and visitors with mobility needs. The village has been made as wheelchair-friendly as possible; please download our Mobility Needs Information Guide to help you plan your visit. Alternatively, call us on 01555 661345 for more information.

Free coach parking: if the distance is too great for passengers to travel from the main car park, the driver is permitted to drop off (and pick up) passengers down in the village (see red dot in map) beside our Visitor Centre recpetion building. The coach should then return to park in the main car park which has ample spaces available (see black dot in map) for the duration of the visit. Coaches can find space to turn around in the village at the turning point by the Counting House (see blue dot in map) or in the Hotel car park.

This is what you will see when arriving at the entrance to New Lanark village at the top of the hill. Take the right turn to drive down the hill into the village where there is space to drop off your visitors. You will then be able to return to park in our main car park which has ample space for coaches. In the past we have had many coaches and articulated lorries driving via this road, so it is accessible. Please use the arrows in the virtual map below to see what the road is like.
