Pollock Country Park - Review

The Park is Glasgow's biggest park in Glasgow. Lovely trees and manicured gardens make it the perfect tourist attraction. The park has retained all of its grandeur from the time it belonged to the wealthy Maxwell family. Today, it is home to the Burrell Collection. The impressive collection of paintings includes Islamic and Chinese art, sculpture and also artifacts from the medieval period. It is certainly an interesting place to see.

You can also spend the day on the lovely grass or take a walk around Pollock park’s picturesque landscape. The Pollock house is another interesting sight to see. There is plenty to do here as the park also has a children’s play-area and many scenic walkways. It is a wonderful place to just unwind and relax on your Glasgow Holiday.

Pollock Country Park, Glasgow Reviews

  • Pollock house and gardens is such a beautiful, pleasant and peaceful place. Of course, this is National Trust site so was really well maintained, clean and looked after. We had originally planned to see the gardens, the house, the galleries and a special visit to see the Highland coos in one trip, but ended up deciding to split it up over several visits. This change in plan came about due to the remarkable weather, and quite stunning gardens and woodlands. You almost felt like child again, exploring nooks and crannies, discovering secret dens and door ways. Everything was so well maintained and looked after, we walked around for a good couple of hours. The wee cafe is also fascinating with its old world look and feel, the staff were so pleasant and happy and the food on offer was exactly what you'd hope and want from this sort of place. I had a top notch ploughmans lunch, and my wife had a filling brie and bacon seeded roll. We went to see the cows too... (this was my favourite bit... I swear to god, someone brushes their fringes in the morning). Well the outside was enough to fill our day, especially with a little sun bathing under a tree by the river and cant wait to return to see the galleries and inside Pollock House itself.

  • Cracking well maintained park for all .. Will expand here .. Memories a plenty. Visit & see .. Any questions ask away! Great for walks in the mud & leaves, feeding the ducks, seeing the horses & cattle while having a picnic. Lots benches to sit on facing gorgeous views. Pollok House is worth a visit & the surrounding gardens & buildings a must. Nature walks, little people land as my granddaughter calls it is a must see for the kids. Cafe/Bar situated at house with toilet facilities. Plenty of walks and things to see everywhere x

  • This is a nicely preserved estate from the old aristocracy. Make sure to take the guided tour of downstairs. It's well worth it. And there's a very nice café here too.

  • Entry to the house is for national trust members, I don't know the cost. Otherwise it's free. Currently the burrell collection is closed & has been since 2016 for renovation work think it reopens 2020. The stables are also no longer used which is a huge pity as they are impressive & was a good place to see the 4 horses. The grounds seem to be in a state of disrepair I don't know why as you can see a lot of effort had previously gone into them especially the vegetable garden. The main draw......HIGHLAND cows you can get close enough to touch them

  • It's a great huge country park just a couple of minutes walk on the left hand side from Pollokshaws West train station. The Burrell Collection is located inside although it was closed for renovation when I went there. It's very scenic and it's great for walking, playing, cycling, golfing and so much more. I would recommend taking your own picnic unless you don't mind paying the slightly expensive prices for food and drink. Just please remember to take your litter with you as there was a few bits where people hadn't.
