Glasgow: Pollok House Entrance Ticket
- Duration: 2 hours
See the grand country estate of Pollok House where the initial discussions for the founding of the National Trust for Scotland took place in 1931. Set in the scenic Pollok Country Park on the outskirts of Glasgow, explore the house and the grounds where the Maxwell family lived for six centuries. Admire the Georgian grandeur of the site that would be at home in a Jane Austen novel. Inside the house itself, see an impressive collection of Spanish art that Sir William Stirling Maxwell amassed during his lifetime. See portraits of the Habsburg rulers of Spain which hang alongside powerful religious scenes. Downstairs, explore the tiled passageway which is an eye-opener to the scale of work it took to run this magnificent house.
