Scotland's largest and the UK's third largest city, Glasgow is packed full of cultural highlights waiting to be explored.

Pollok House and Park

This lavish 1930’s National Trust site provides a wonderful retreat from the stresses of the city so why not wander around the extraordinary house and marvel at the beauty of treasured artefacts? As Spring flowers come to bloom, there are few places more tranquil than these splendid gardens.

House and grounds open year round

 

Swan Lake by the Scottish Ballet

Don’t miss this version of the timeless classic choreographed by the international award winning David Dawson. This contemporary take on Tchaikovsky’s work pushes the dancers of the Scottish ballet to their limits, and set in the atmospheric Theatre Royal, this is a truly captivating performance.
