Pollok House

A grand country house in the heart of Glasgow with an impressive collection of Spanish art

Planning your visit

From Monday 13 January vehicle access to Pollok House is via Dumbreck Road only as the Pollokshaws Road entrance will be closed for essential maintenance. Works are expected to last 10 weeks. Please also note that, due to ongoing roadworks in the country park, the accessible car park in our lower courtyard may at times be closed. In such instances, visitors are encouraged to park in the Riverside car park from where the accessible entrance can be reached by foot or wheelchair. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Pushchairs and baby back carriers are allowed in the basement and garden only. Storage for pushchairs is available.

For conservation reasons a number of paintings have been removed from Pollok House. These can be viewed by appointment at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre by contacting museums@glasgowlife.org.uk

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: pollokhouse@nts.org.uk or telephone 0141 616 6410.

Facilities & access

There are cobbles and a short slope leading from the main car park to the accessible entrance, located in the lower courtyard. Please call 0141 616 6410 to inform staff that you are waiting.

Visitor reviews of accessibility can be found on the Euan’s Guide website here.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Accessible parking is normally available in the lower courtyard on the west side of the house. Please note that the accessible car park is currently closed due to essential maintenance. Visitors are encouraged to park in the Riverside car park and the accessible entrance can be accessed by foot/wheelchair (however, please also be advised that the route to the accessible entrance from the Riverside is slightly uneven due to the maintenance works). We apologise for any inconvenience.
