Pollok House is the ancestral home of the Maxwell family, built 1752. See one of the finest collections of Spanish art in the UK, together with fine Edwardian furniture and furnishings. Below the stairs, the servants’ quarters illustrate the reality of running an Edwardian country house.
Friendly guides are always on hand to entertain children (and adults alike!) and there are costumed guided basement tours throughout the day. Outside, you’re spoilt for choice. Pollok House is set in the middle of Pollok Country Park, which is the perfect place for young explorers to roam in the woods, splash about next to the river or swing in the adventure playground. Make sure you take them to visit the Highland cattle that live in the park!
On both days there will be a craft fair featuring a variety of crafters, makers and bakers!
