The house was fabulous. The art collection is incredible and very surprising given its heavy Spanish orientation. The only disappointment was lunch. The lunch place needs to be sharpened up. We can't complain about the service because we never got any so we abandoned it after waiting forever for no one to take our order.

The park contains Pollok House which is fully fitted in period. Also the Burrell gallery which contains the eclectic collection of Sir William Burrell. Within the extensive park you may see a herd of Highland Cattle, Clydesdale horses and also enjoy a walk along the river bank.

If you tire of the buzz of the city itself a visit here is well worth the effort especially if the weather is good.

The country park is a green area close to Glasgow with fields of Highland Cattle and heavy horses. An ideal place to walk or cycle when the hustle and bustle of the city centre gets too much.

Visit here regularly and love it everytime. Its perfect for walking or just admiring Glasgows greener parts. 2 great cafes, one in the burrel collection which us great for families and one in pollock country house which is oerceft for something a bit different. The staff are all very helpful and knowlageable about the park and its history. Simply perfect.

We live near Pollok Park, and I couldn't even guess how many times we've been; countless! NEVER tire of visiting, there are so many different corners to explore. Just love that this huge area of greenery is right in the middle of the city. Love it in every season, too, even on rainy days. Always a chance to see deer... More

We recently visited Glasgow for a week and while we enjoy all the buzz and bustle of a big city it was great to find the peaceful Pollok Park. Although we didn't go into Pollok House the gardens were lovely and we saw the beautiful Clydesdale horses. We visited the ecletic Burrell Collection which is well worth an hour or... More
