But the powerful and handsome angel sent from above has a mind of his own and teaching mortal Henry an immortal lesson in romance isn’t all he has planned!

A grand country house set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park and in easy reach of Glasgow City Centre. 

Pollok House was home to the Maxwell family and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s. Above stairs, the lavish family rooms are packed full of period furniture and furnishings. Below stairs the vast servants’ quarters show the realities of running a country house.

Some of the servants’ rooms are now the shop selling books, gifts and food, while the original kitchen is now home to the Edwardian Kitchen.  The below stairs area is free to visit all year round.

A visit to Pollok House can be easily combined with the nearby Burrell Collection and other sites within Pollok Country Park including the old stable courtyard, the walled garden and glasshouses, and the woodland and riverside walks.

Pollok House is currently undergoing some external maintenance which is expected to continue until August 2016.  

For conservation reasons, some of our paintings including works by El Greco, Goya and Blake have been removed from the house. These works can be viewed by appointment at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre for more information click here.

Pollok House is a popular wedding venue, during functions there may be restricted access to one or two rooms.  If you are concerned about this affecting your enjoyment of Pollok House please call us to check 0141 616 6410.
