Excellent park and surrounding grounds, inside the house is interesting however an hour would complete the visit

“Ripp Off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Have visited Pollok House on numerous occasions but was disappointed that kids under 2 were charged Five pounds and five from each adult. We were £15 all in and the present was a book that is on sale in any pound shop!! The art treasures etc are of no value to a baby and we thought this was a pure ripp off, when we complained I was sent an obnoxious email. Places that were designed for all to enjoy shouldn't be ripping off the low paid.

“Superb collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The home of a wealthy individual who spent a great deal furnishing it with art treasures of such diversity has got to be on the agenda.

“A "must see" at christmas...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I love Pollok House, but this is the first time i've been at this time of the year. The house is beautifully decorated, and Mrs Claus is there for the kids, despite not having any kids with us, we were able to go in and see Mrs Claus in her beautiful room, surrounded by toys.....magical for any children that get taken to see her. We had a full scottish breakfast which was absolutely delicious and great value for money at £8, the kitchen/restaurant is very quaint, as are the two shops...one for food/sweets etc and the other for gifts...both full of lovely scottish gifts and local produce. ALL staff there are very helpful & pleasant. Well worth a visit any time of the year, but I would definitely recommend a visit at christmas. Also beautiful walks in the grounds aswell, stunning. This house was without a doubt a gift for Glasgow. Love it!
