A grand country house near Glasgow city centre, Pollok House is Scotland’s answer to Downton Abbey 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, as well as the UK’s finest collection of Spanish art, including paintings by El Greco, Goya and Murillo.

Below stairs the vast servants’ quarters show the realities of running a country house.

Set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park, which is also home to the Burrell Collection, Pollok House is an enjoyable, educational and entertaining day out for all the family.

After enjoying a wonderful lunch or afternoon tea in our Edwardian Kitchen Restaurant you may wish to take a stroll in Pollok House's delightful surroundings set within Pollok Country Park, which is also home to the Burrell Collection just a 10-minute walk away.
