Pollock House and Pollock Park has a special place in my heart. My girlfriend ( and now my wife of 27 years) still visit this place regularly. If you have time, book a table on the Pollock House restaurant. Its located on the old basement kitchen of the house and is a wonder to behold. The food is excellent, not too expensive and whilst dining you will feel that you have been transported back a few hundred years as you marvel at the massive iron cooking range that covers most of of the back wall of the restaurant. Would advise booking a table as this place gets busy at the weekend
Want to immerse yourself in a piece of unique Glaswegian history? Don't want to spoil this for you by not doing it justice in my description. Go and see it. You will love this !
An absolute must see when you visit Glasgow if you are into the Arts. I guarantee that you will not see anything else like this anywhere else in the planet ! I loved it so much I've been back with friends and will go back again and again.
Located in the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow's West End, this wee gem is a must visit tearoom. Food is great, reasonably priced and the staff are are really friendly.
Ive lost count of the amount of times i have been here over the years. This is a piece of living history in Glasgow and is an absolute must see when you visit the city.
If you read my other review on this place you will see that my review is tinted somewhat as i have visited all the previous locations in Glasgow where the transport museum was originally located. Architecturally this place is stunning but from my own perspective ( and it is my own) i preferred when this museum was located in Albert Drive on Glasgow's Southside. Im an old romantic with rose coloured spectacles who remembers this museum from the 1960's. Times move on but childhood memories and emotions don't !
Yet another wee gem located in what is known as Glasgow Green. Absolutely beautiful and packed to the rafters with Glasgow history. This is a must see!
Lost count of the amount of times i have visited Glasgow Cathedral. Yet another piece of stunning Glaswegian architecture. Well worth going to take part in a Sunday church service when you visit. Its not often that you will get the opportunity in life to sing hymns in such a glorious locations. Another must see !
Too much history in this location for me to do it justice! Refer to to the Wikipedia link for details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow_Green
Immerse yourself in yet another unique piece of Glasgow history. If you don't like a bar to be too crowded, I would recommend avoiding this place on a Friday and Saturday night.
If you intend to visit Pollock House, please ensure that you also visit the Burrell collection. Architecturally stunning building full of historic artefacts from all over the planet. Yet another absolute must see when you are in Glasgow.
