Pollok House

Pollok House A grand country house near Glasgow city centre, Pollok House is Scotland’s answer to Downton Abbey and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s.
(107)

Above stairs, the lavish family rooms are packed full of period furniture and furnishings, as well as the UK’s finest collection of Spanish art, including paintings by El Greco, Goya and Murillo. Below stairs the vast servants’ quarters show the realities of running a country house. Set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park, Pollok House is an enjoyable, educational and entertaining day out for all the family.

Please keep an eye out for Thes I'd you are in the park. Thank you. https://www.facebook.com/104750168102361/posts/108135197763858/
I'm sorry completely forgot to share this video I took while exploring the house. We think we caught some ghostly activities at some points but not overly sure

Hello, today I lost my drone near to Pollok House. If someone found, please contact me on 07456166961. It's drone DJI Mavic Mini.
Thank you Mrs Claus and all the team!!! My daughter had the best time at the house today! She loved every minute of it and Mrs Claus was fantastic with her! The house looks beautiful, such a magical fairytale experience! Thank you! Merry Christmas!
Thank you for a lovely afternoon. The boys loved meeting Mrs Clause 🤶. The house was amazing, one of the best Christmas displays I have seen. Such great value (even better if you are a member). Have a great Christmas 🤶❄🌲

Spot the maze baby...!
Poor value for money I ordered the in-house ham sandwich. It consisted of a pretty ordinary unbuttered ciabatta roll, containing barely a slice of nice ham, the thinnest slice of tomato possible without using a razor blade, a few limp leaves of rocket and a smear of piccalilli all costing £7.50! Are you kidding NTS? The constituent parts barely add up to £1. As an organisation I know you are always looking for donations, but when did you turn to daylight robbery? The coffee was pleasant enough, but had a sprinkling of sugar on top...which I didn't ask for. Future customers beware https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186534-d5575115-r681886460-The_Edwardian_Kitchen_Restaurant_Pollok_House-Glasgow_Scotland.html# 😞
Hi I attended the Easter egg hunt over the weekend and my daughter had her photo taken by the photographer from Pearl and Plum have they advised you of any issues about viewing the photos on their page?
