Venue Description

A grand country house set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park and in easy reach of Glasgow City Centre. Pollok House was home to the Maxwell family and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s. Above stairs, the lavish family rooms are packed full of period furniture and furnishings.

Some of the servants’ rooms are now the shop selling books, gifts and food, while the original kitchen is now home to the Edwardian Kitchen. The below stairs area is free to visit all year round.
