Pollok House Tours

Known as “Scotland’s answer to Downton Abbey,” the Pollok House gives a taste of 1930s upstairs/downstairs life. Upstairs, visitors will find period furniture and furnishings, as well as one of the finest collections of Spanish art in the United Kingdom, with Goyas, Murillos and El Grecos all on show. William Blake paintings are also part of the collection. And downstairs is home to the huge servants’ quarters.
Set in Pollok Country Park and said to be one of Scotland’s finest Edwardian country houses, Pollok House was the ancestral home of the Maxwell and Jardine families. The site is a popular spot for a stroll, and visitors can look out for the rhododendrons; there are over 1,000 kinds in the park.
Three miles from downtown Glasgow, Pollok House includes a restaurant serving lunch and afternoon tea, as well as two onsite shops. The country house is open daily year-round (from 10am to 5pm), and entry costs £6.50 for adults. It’s a 15-minute walk from the Country Park entrance to the house.
