This annual festival dates back to 1140 AD when Lanark was granted its Royal Charter by King David I. Lanark is the only Burgh in Scotland that inspects its boundaries each year and has doneĀ  since being granted its Royal Charter. The first Lanimer procession was held in 1892 and the following year saw its first Queen crowned. Lanimer day is now one of the largest processions of its kind in the United Kingdom. If you want a fantastic day out Lanark Lanimers is definately worth a visit.
