Within Pollok House, civil, religious and humanist ceremonies are held in the Pavilion Library, probably the finest twentieth-century library in Scotland. Framed by Ionic columns and adorned by some of Pollok's most treasured paintings, the Library also houses a Steinway concert grand piano, which can be played to entertain guests and welcome the bride down the aisle.

From the Library, French doors open on to the elaborately designed Parterre Garden, ideal for photographs, celebratory drinks or simply a relaxing stroll before dinner.


Pollok House offers spacious and elegant surroundings for champagne receptions, cocktail parties and gala dinners. With an exceptional art collection and a Steinway concert grand piano, the Pavilion Library is also ideal for recitals and concerts.

With excellent facilities for meetings and presentations, Pollok House is a versatile venue for both day and evening events. The picturesque country park and gardens offer delegates a chance to relax between meetings and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Facilities include private parking and a fully licensed restaurant.
