Expert review of Pollok House
Set within the ancestral family home of the Maxwell family, Pollok House is a genuine slice of “upstairs, downstairs” life Glasgow style. Located within the leafy confines of Pollok Park, this elegant building is a character-filled house full of paintings, furniture and fine glass-wares: for art lovers in particular, it contains a fine collection of great works by Spaniards such as Goya, Murillo and El Greco – whose famous Lady in a Fur Wrap can be seen in the Library. It’s exceptionally popular with local school groups and Glaswegians like me, which can only be a good sign.
Entry to the main house: adult £8, family £20, concessions £5. Access to the restaurant, shops and servants’ quarters is free throughout the year. Entry to the main house is also free from the start of November through to late March.
