Pollok House

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

Planning your visit

Due to redecoration works taking place in the west wing of the upper house, the following areas are currently closed:

  • Dining Room
  • Drawing Room
  • Cedar Room
  • The Sir John Stirling Maxwell ‘Lad O’ Pairts’ exhibition

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we’re sure you’ll be delighted with how it looks when it’s finished!


Refuel in the Edwardian Kitchen café and enjoy delicious soups, cakes and the Trust’s signature scones.

Some of the servants’ rooms now house shops selling books, gifts and food.

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

Parking is available behind the house and in car parks around Pollok Country Park.

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.
