After four years and a £9.1m regeneration project, the birthplace of the Scottish explorer and missionary David Livingstone reopened to the public on 28 July. The house in South Lanarkshire now boasts a new exhibition space, allowing 30 per cent more of its collection to go on permanent display. Here, visitors will follow the story of Livingstone’s life, from his impoverished upbringing in a family of mill workers to his famous voyages to Africa in search of the source of the Nile – while also learning about the lesser-known figures who accompanied Livingstone on his expeditions. Find out more from the David Livingstone Birthplace’s website.
