Inside you can see the world famous painting Christ of St. John of the Cross by Salvador Dali as well as works by Rembrandt, Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh, amongst others. The building itself is a work of art, opened in 1901 and having recently undergone significant restoration you will find yourself admiring the beautiful Spanish Baroque style architecture as much as the art on display.
The full-day city tour of Glasgow follows the same itinerary as the half-day tour in the morning. At lunchtime, we can recommend a restaurant to suit your budget and taste. Then, in the afternoon, we will take you to Pollok Country Park, situated five miles to the south of the city centre and recent winner of the European Park of the Year award. Once there you have the whole afternoon to explore Pollok House and the Burrell Collection (free entry) and take a wander around the mature park land. Pollok House is an 18th century mansion built for the Maxwell family and bequeathed by them to the city of Glasgow in 1966. It features extensive gardens and is open to the public year-round. The neighbouring Burrell Collection is home to an extraordinary display of artifacts from around the world as well as works by Degas, Cezanne and Rodin. If, after all of that culture you need some fresh air then why not take a walk around the park, grab a photograph with the resident Highland cows or if you're really lucky you might spot one of the wild roe dear that roam the estate!
