This is a very characteristic town around Glasgow. In addition to the beautiful scenery, the biggest difference between this place and other surrounding Scottish towns is that there is no heavy British history, but traces of modern economic and political development. I personally think that compared to the distant and complicated royal story, the workshops, factories, kindergartens, classrooms, charity and dreams here, as well as the "Utopian Socialism" in the history textbooks, will make Chinese tourists feel closer. Round trip on the same day, country walks and museum visits, highly recommended!
New Lanark in Scotland is located in a charming gorge by the River Clyde, not too far from Glasgow. It is listed as a world cultural heritage, not only because of the beautiful natural environment, but also because it was once the largest production base of cotton spinning industry in the UK. Although the cotton spinning industry has declined, there are still many refurbished cotton spinning mills and warehouses. For the visit, it is worth visiting.
The World Heritage Committee's 2001 comment: New Lanark is a small village located in the most scenic part of Scotland in the 18th century. In the early 19th century, philanthropist and utopian idealist Robert Owen created a model of modern industrialized communities here. The unforgettable cotton mills, spacious and well-equipped workers' communities, rigorous educational institutions and good school education are still evidence of Owen’s humanism to this day.
A place very suitable for people to live and vacation
