Personally, I love Pollok House. I love stately homes, Downton Abbey and Jane Austen novels and this house is a chance to see what it was to live as Glasgow aristocracy. The grounds are beautiful and if you're lucky to get a nice day you can walk for hours around the estate. The house itself is interesting. When you go in the main door you pay (I think around £5) to see the two upper floors. They are fancy and nicely decorated and tell the story of the family who owned the house. The downstairs floor in the house would have been the servants quarters and you can go downstairs for free. While a few of the rooms are intact downstairs also houses a gift shop and a little cafe in what would have been the scullery.
I don't know if I would recommend the house for children, as it might be a bit boring for them and it is not a very interactive place. But for anyone a bit older who loves the charm of the 18th and 19th centuries Pollok House should not be missed!
